Abstract (in English)

In 2005, the Heritage Council of New South Wales published the state’s first policies and guidelines for Interpreting Heritage Places and Items. Developed in consultation with professional, industry and community stakeholders, this document recognises the vital role of interpretation in transmitting the Spirit of Place. Drawing its illustrations from a variety of interpretive projects around New South Wales, the new Illustrated Edition seeks to extend the accessibility of its best practice principles and procedures to a wide audience – all those involved in preparing, commissioning, assessing or approving interpretation plans, with or without a background in the discipline. This paper introduces the essential ingredients of successful heritage interpretation as set out and illustrated in the new edition and discusses their applicability to future audiences and new media.
