Exploring History

Our heritage consists of the places, objects and knowledge we have inherited from past generations and want to use, learn from and pass on to future generations. NSW has a diverse range of heritage sites including buildings, collections, gardens, military fortifications, landscapes, shipwrecks and more. NPWS is dedicated to conserving and rehabilitating these sites while maintaining their heritage values. You’re encouraged to visit NSW’s heritage sites, including Hill End Historic Site, Yerranderie Private Town and Hartley Historic Site, and Fort Denison.
