|Queensland Heritage Register|
The Queensland Heritage Register is a list of Queensland’s significant heritage places. The Department of Environment and Science manages the details about places on the Queensland Heritage Register, but the Queensland Heritage Council makes decisions about which places are entered in or removed from it, and when substantial changes are made to those entry documents.
|Underwater Cultural Heritage Program|
Popular and vulnerable historic shipwrecks are periodically inspected by government agencies to ensure they have not deteriorated quickly due to environmental or human impacts. Site monitoring and compliance checks also ensure site restrictions are enforced. Inspection results are recorded in internal database and site conditions and information updated on the Australian National Shipwreck Database.
|Open House Events Queensland|
At each event throughout the state, volunteers collect visitor numbers for each featured building, including heritage places. After the event, Open House Event managers collate the statistics and supply a report on the outcomes to the department.
|Digitally-mapped terrestrial and maritime heritage sites|
Innovation in digital scanning and mapping and the use of drones contributes to the conservation, management and interpretation of heritage sites.
