Heritage Icons Projects
Parks Victoria is responsible for managing the state’s largest and most diverse collection of heritage places on public land. From buildings to shipwrecks to archaeological sites, Parks Victoria maintains a vast collection of heritage places and objects – providing the community with opportunities to re-engage with, reinterpret and learn from the past.
A $16.5 million investment from the Victorian Government will continue Parks Victoria’s important heritage work by restoring and repairing iconic sites across the state - preserving and protecting them for future generations to visit.
While the Great Ocean Road Coast and Parks Authority is leading the project to repair Cape Otway Lightstation, all other Heritage Icons projects are being managed by Parks Victoria. Further details on these projects can be found on the pages below.
We're undertaking important works at Cape Schanck Lightstation to rectify structural damage with the goal of reopening areas of the heritage-listed lightkeeper’s quarters to the public. The project will enable the community to continue to visit this special area and learn about its rich history.
We're remedying structural issues and repairing concrete structures across Fort Nepean to conserve this piece of Victoria's history for the future.
We're repairing the historic Point Hicks Lighthouse to restore the structure and corroding stonework. Works will provide safe access to the lighthouse and help reactivate the site for the community and visitors to enjoy for many years to come.
We're delivering important conservation works to the Mansion’s ageing Welsh Slate roof and plumbing to protect the heritage-listed building and its contents. The mansion’s glass clock tower face and stonework which has disintegrated over time will also be repaired.
We're undertaking works to repair structural and rot problems at the lightstation and internal issues in its heritage listed buildings. Works will conserve the Lightstation to ensure both local and international visitors can continue to experience this unique piece of Australia’s maritime history.
