Sustaining our heritage is more than simply conserving its fabric. Sustaining our heritage also involves communicating to the public why our heritage resources are important. Finding the best solution involves a variety of factors, including interplay between understanding the audience, knowledge of the environment in which the interpretation is presented, utilising the range of themes and stories and choosing the most appropriate media.

- Integration into building design
- Education programs
- Exhibition design
- Interpretive walks
- Visitor centres
