Context: Statutory lists and registers have grown in an ad hoc manner and provide a partial understanding of the extent of Australia’s historic heritage. In some areas, systematic thematic survey and assessment provides more thorough coverage, but this is the exception. Historic places are also typically seen as individual sites rather than part of a cultural landscape
