Wingecarribee Heritage Awards

As part of the Australian Heritage Festival, Council biennially runs the Wingecarribee Heritage Awards with the assistance of the Wingecarribee Heritage Advisory Committee.


The Heritage Awards programme aims to recognise and celebrate projects, events or people who contribute positively to our understanding and appreciation of the heritage and history of the Southern Highlands. The awards also serve to promote excellence in the design of new elements in a heritage context and to encourage maintenance of heritage assets and heritage areas.
