The North Burnett Regional Council and heritage consultants, Converge Heritage + Community, were jointly recognised for their work on the North Burnett Local Heritage Study at the National Trust of Queensland Heritage Awards held in Brisbane on Wednesday 27 August.
The heritage study received a Governor's Heritage Award for achievement in a local heritage project. The study was completed by Converge and resulted in the entry of 64 places on the North Burnett Regional Council's local heritage register.
These places are representative of the rich and diverse history of the North Burnett since European settlement and reflect a range of historic themes and events of significance to the region.
Places range from mining heritage and land settlement schemes through to shire halls and impressive railway bridges. Other places include the Gayndah Shire Hall, Biggenden Museum, Eidsvold Homestead, Mount Perry Copper Smelter site, former Mundubbera Butter Factory and even the town layout of Monto.
The study received strong support from the North Burnett Regional Council, as well as a range of people with a special interest in the history and heritage of the region, including local historians.
Converge Heritage + Community maintain a Fraser Coast office and has also completed studies for the Fraser Coast and Gladstone, which meant that the study recognised the importance of the North Burnett in a wider regional context.
"We congratulate Council for their involvement and support for the development of the local heritage register," Simon Gall, Director of Converge Heritage + Community, said.
"We are proud of the innovative approach utilised within the study and firmly believe that the diversity of the register entries provides a true reflection of the richness of the region's history, something of which the region can and should be proud."
The National Trust Heritage Awards have been held annually for more than 30 years and specifically recognise exceptional cultural heritage projects undertaken throughout Queensland.
