Heritage Management

The Anzac Memorial was included on the State Heritage Register (SHR) on 23 April 2010 (listing # 01822) as recognition of its heritage significance to the state of NSW. Inclusion on the SHR is an indication that the Memorial is of particular importance to the people of NSW, enriches our understanding of our history and identity, is legally protected as a heritage item under the NSW Heritage Act, and now requires approval from the Heritage Council of NSW for major changes
