Heritage

Boroondara has a rich and diverse history that you can still see in our historic homes, commercial buildings, parks and gardens, monuments and plaques.

Our role and responsibility is to identify and protect all heritage places in Boroondara for current and future generations.

Discover how we protect, support and promote our heritage through heritage studies and assessments and the Heritage Action Plan. Learn how to provide effective feedback on heritage studies and amendments and find out more about heritage and property development.

To find out whether your property is affected by a Heritage Overlay and download the relevant heritage citation, please visit the Victorian Heritage Database.

Please note: only properties that are included in a Heritage Overlay are searchable on the Victorian Heritage Database. Properties recommended for inclusion in the Heritage Overlay or subject to an interim Heritage Overlay will not be displayed. For details on any proposed Heritage Overlays, please refer to the relevant heritage study page.
