2018 Regional Heritage Conference

Sacred Heritage

The 2018 conference concluded in Geraldton on 13 April, having brought together more than 80 participants representing local government, State agencies, Church authorities, representatives of a range of community groups, and others. 

Most of the conference presentations are now available for download using the links on this page.  Please respect the copyright and intellectual property of the authors.

Sacred places can be sites used for religious services; places connected with ritual or rites; burial grounds and memorials; places for reflection or contemplation; or any other site with which we connect on a spiritual or emotional level. 

This conference explores both historic and Aboriginal heritage and delivers practical guidance on the care, interpretation, activation and appropriate sustainable use of WA’s sacred heritage.
