Abstract

'Heritage' and 'industrial heritage' are complex, wideranging concepts which are not easily defined. The Australian Heritage Commission was set up in 1976 in response to concern about the environment and what was happening to Australia's 'heritage' or 'National Estate'. 'Industrial heritage' is an integral part of the 'National Estate'. It is included in the Register of the National Estate under subject categories and themes, rather than as a general heading of 'industrial heritage'. A strategy for 'industrial heritage' is probably not yet possible, however, theme-based strategies directed towards public education, identification and conservation of the various parts of industrial heritage are possible and already exist. These should be built upon.
