The survey was highly commended in the Cultural Heritage Awards.

The document identifies, locates and provides an illustrated Statement of Significance for each :

  • precinct,
  • place,
  • object,
  • element,
  • view and
  • vista.

In addition the project team has mapped the evolution of the landscape in a series of maps dating from pre European settlement to current day in 30 year increments.

The places of significance includes numerous streetscapes, Lake Canobolas, native vegetation and heritage buildings such as duration cottages, Croagh Patrick and Duntryleague.

An online source of information about the report has been developed which can be accessed by the community, tourists and students.
