Heritage Victoria expresses sympathy and support for the many communities affected by bush fires. We acknowledge the work of Forest Fire Management Victoria and other emergency services in protecting lives and communities.

We know that heritage places and archaeological sites have been impacted by the fires. Until the fires subside the full extent of any damage will remain unknown.

Heritage Victoria is providing an immediate response to this crisis and ensuring long term plans are in place to protect our heritage places.

If you are the owner of a State listed heritage property affected by the fires, please contact us for support on (03) 7022 6359 or email heritage.victoria@delwp.vic.gov.au

If you are the owner of a locally listed heritage property, your local council is the best contact. Please contact us if you need support in obtaining local contacts or for general heritage advice.
