The study aim is to undertake a comprehensive review of heritage items and places for the Mildura Rural City Council. Part of the review considers and updates (where required) items identified in the Mildura Conservation Study, 1988 (known as the Andrew Ward Study). Additional items and places were nominated for consideration and further assessment through the work undertaken in Stage 1 of the project.
GML Heritage Victoria (formerly known as Context) have been working to review Mildura’s heritage assets, including preparation of a thematic environmental history, Community consultation and engagement activities, and the identification of potential heritage places.
A Community Reference Group made up of knowledgeable community members, representing each of the smaller townships and the main centre, and the Council's Heritage Advisor Garry Stanley, was established at the start of the project.
Stage 1 of the project identified assets for assessment was completed in August 2020. Please see the Document Library for a copy of the project report.
Stage 2 of the project will assess the items and places previously identified and confirmed as requiring further assessment in Stage 1 of the project.
