Heritage Gaps Study

Bass Coast Shire Council is undertaking a review of the Shire’s post-contact heritage, a period focusing on our history from first contact between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people through to today. To assist us in identifying and protecting our Shire’s heritage places, we are seeking nominations from the community for places to be considered in our Heritage Gaps Study.

If you know of a local place, structure, building, relic or object that may have heritage significance we would love to hear from you! Nominate a heritage place by Friday 3 April 2020 by filling out a nomination form available below, and sending it back to:

Bass Coast Shire Council, PO Box 118, Wonthaggi VIC 3995; or

What is a heritage place?

A heritage place may be a site, area, building, group of buildings, structure, monument, archaeological site, tree, garden, landscape, geological formation or other place of natural or cultural significance and its associated land.

Heritage objects may include furniture, memorials, collections, shipwrecks, relics, archaeological artefacts, equipment, transport vehicles and everyday articles that contribute to an understanding of a place’s history.


If you have any questions about this project, please contact the Strategic Planning team on 1300 BCOAST (226 278) or via email at
