Highlights from current Living Heritage Program projects

  • The history of the Victorian Heritage Register listed Benalla Migrant Camp is showcased in a video about conservation planning for the former 1949 RAAF base and migrant camp site, which illuminated the experiences of those who lived there.
  • A video for the historic St Mark’s Anglican Church in Camberwell reveals the logistical challenges of replacing 144 deteriorated concrete louvres weighing some 45 kilos each, in a church spire which reaches 22 metres in height.
  • The story of the conservation of the Quercus Methodist Church, Beechworth is told by Judith Doughty, Quercus Beechworth manager, who details the many community events and functions held in the building and what the restoration will mean for the community.
