The Western Australian Heritage Awards were established in 1992 by the Heritage Council to acknowledge the outstanding contribution of individuals and organisations to heritage in Western Australia.
The awards showcase excellence in revitalising heritage places, setting standards for future interpretation, conservation and adaptive reuse of places on the State Register of Heritage Places. It also recognises those individuals that have been instrumental in elevating the value of heritage, securing its place in Western Australia’s future.
