Description

The Botanic Gardens Trust (NSW) is the custodian of a vast collection, comprised of movable heritage, built heritage and living heritage. The collection is spread across three sites: the Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney, Mount Annan Botanic Gardens and Mount Tomah Botanic Gardens. As part of its requirements under Section 170 of the Heritage Act, the Botanic Gardens Trust engaged ICS to work with them to develop a Heritage and Conservation Register for its collection of heritage items. The development of this Register also included an assessment of the significance of the collections held by the Trust. 

Outcomes

  • Analysis of existing documentation
  • Development of Section 170 Heritage and Conservation Register
  • Assessment of significance of the Trust's collections
  • Provision of recommendations
