Quick Reference


A code of best practice relating to heritage conservation developed in the late 1970s and 1980s by ICOMOS Australia, most recently revised in November 1999. The Charter provides guidance for the conservation and management of places of cultural significance, including natural, indigenous, and historic places with cultural values (aesthetic, scientific, social, or spiritual). It advocates a cautious approach to conservation, changing as little as possible and involving in the decision‐making process the participation of people for whom a place has value.
