Heritage Places

The unique history of Kingston is illustrated by a wide variety of heritage places that include buildings, neighbourhood precincts, trees, landscape areas, and urban forms.

Our heritage places reflect the key themes that have shaped the development of the City since its beginnings in the 1840s. From the growth of the railways during the interwar periods, to the development of the seaside areas, to the post-war industrial and residential expansion.

Our heritage is highly valued by the community, which has shown support for controls and policies that protect places of identified significance. For more details, download the brochure below.
