NSW Heritage Forum

The NSW Heritage Forum is a two-day industry event hosted by us and supported by the Heritage Council of NSW.

Each year, our Forum showcases a series of engaging presentations from heritage leaders, thought-provoking discussions and site visits designed to enhance best practice and to support heritage advisors, and local government planners and managers. 

Our Forum covers current issues impacting the future of Heritage and provides a platform of constructive dialogue between local government and heritage advisors, planners, managers, partner agencies and other industry experts.

Last year's NSW Heritage Forum, was held at Sydney’s Beta Bar – a grand heritage-listed 1877 building which was the old Australian Worker's Union. Highlights included Glenda Chalker, Chair of Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Advisory Committee (ACHAC) who outlined key priorities and recommendations for the future Aboriginal Cultural Heritage and Frank Howarth, Chair of the NSW Heritage Council who outlined the Council’s Strategic Focus Areas for 2019 – 2022.

Lively and interactive Q&A panels discussions take place every year and our agency partners at Public Works Advisory take guests on site visits, such as Major Stonework Program and Anzac Memorial in Hyde Park.

Guest speakers provide new industry insights, suggested actions, practical solutions and key priorities for the coming years.
