Yarra has a rich history and is home to a large number of historical buildings and sites that are of interest and value to the community. We have a strong commitment to the protection and enhancement of Yarra's heritage.
Heritage can relate to a wide variety of places, including a building or a group of buildings, a site or an area, land or a landscape, a tree, garden or parkland, the place of a historical event, industrial sites, archaeological sites, as well as spiritual and religious places.
We admire Yarra's heritage for the stories they tell about our community.
