Engineering Heritage Recognition 

 

Engineers Australia established the Australian Historic Engineering Plaquing Program in 1984 as a means of bringing public recognition to engineering works of historic or heritage significance and to the engineers who created them.

This program is now called the Engineering Heritage Recognition Program.  The purpose of the Program is to encourage conservation of Australian engineering heritage and to raise community awareness of engineering and the benefits it provides.

Further information about the program, including the history and assessment criteria, can be found in the 'Guide to Engineering Heritage Recognition Program'. 

 

More than 220 sites have now been recognised under this program and these are listed, with key details in the Registers which are accessible in both date order and alphabetical order below:
