Mundaring has a rich and colourful history. Local heritage is a defining characteristic of the Shire and needs to be understood, protected, sustained and celebrated.
The Shire wishes to invite contributions from passionate and committed volunteers willing to contribute their time and energy to strengthen and broaden our collective understanding of local heritage. For this reason, the Shire has created this 'community-led' project page to allow interested volunteers to make contributions to:
- make changes / suggestions to existing Place Records;
- suggest new sites worthy of recognition and possible protection.
In 2023 the Shire will commence preparing a Heritage Strategy, to help better preserve our local history. Community nominations have been invited for a Heritage Reference Group (closing 20 January) to assist the Shire and its heritage consultants. There is an online nomination form on the Shire website (www.mundaring.wa.gov.au/news/public-notice-call-for-nominations-for-heritage-reference-group/194).
It is envisaged that a review of the Shire's Local Heritage Survey will occur at some point in the future. This page has been established to assist residents and volunteers to feed into a formal review. Please note, this is not actively administered by Shire staff but will function as a information repository, that will be used as an important data source once a formal heritage review is initiated. Interested stakeholders are also welcome to liaise with the Mundaring & Hills Historical Society (https://www.mundaringhistory.org).
Please note, a site added to this platform will not automatically be afforded any additional level of protection. However its inclusion will ensure the site will be considered, investigated and reviewed at the point of a formal heritage review.
