Abstract (in English)

This paper gives a brief overview of the legislative and regulatory aspects of the conservation system in Australia. It uses as its local examples the state of New South Wales, where the state level system has been operating longer than in many other states, where local government and the community have developed considerable grass roots experience in the implementation of the various laws and regulations. The format is of outline description of the main legislation and its administration, and outline analysis and discussion of the strengths and weaknesses of the system. The paper concludes with some comments on the adequacy of legislative and administrative mechanisms for the protection of cultural heritage.
