The Tasmanian Heritage Register records those places in Tasmania that are of historic cultural heritage significance. These places are important to Tasmania and Tasmanians because of their contribution to our culture and society and their subsequent role in our tourism industry.

At July 2004, there were 5,281 registered places of historic cultural heritage on the Tasmanian Heritage Register. They included a broad range of places, including:

    • houses, public buildings, churches, shops, warehouses, barns, sheds and a service station;
    • cemeteries, walls (e.g. the sandstone wall along Sandy Bay Road, Hobart) and bridges; and
    • trees, hedges and gardens (e.g. Hobart's St David's Park and Launceston's City Park).
