"The National Trust in Tasmania has a Classification knowledge base for heritage listing in Tasmania (which) work has been carried out by the organisation for 45 years with 4,850 listings on the National Trust register up to 1998.
  • "Records of this database were provided to the Tasmanian Heritage Council in Tasmania, for no fee, as the starting point for the Tasmanian Heritage Council register."
    Australian Heritage Database
    Australian Heritage Database
  • "The (Tasmanian Heritage) Register contained 5,277 pro rata listings - when compared with other states Tasmania holds the most quantity of heritage sites worthy of registration for classification and heritage protection." - PRODUCTIVITY COMMISSION SUBMISSION 2005
  • This list has been rescinded by the Tasmanian Government.
    • " Following recent legislative changes, the following heritage lists have been rescinded with no remaining statutory requirements:
    • • National Trust list (in Tasmania)
    • • The Register of the National Estate (maintained by the Australian Heritage Commission)."

The Australian Heritage Register, also referred to as the Register of the National Estateholds 2301 Tasmanian properties.

The National Trust has published books on each Australian State with their listings such as The Heritage of Tasmania, which is an authoritative illustrated Register of the National Estate in Tasmania.

How many properties are listed (numbering restarts frequently), or the correlation with the National Register, are questions still to be answered. In heritage parlance, these are the Grade A buildings, possibly Grade B.
  • Properties in heritage precincts graded A1, A2 or B are assessed as 'significant' buildings within the context of the heritage precinct.
    Properties in heritage precincts graded C are assessed as 'contributory' to the built form attributes of the heritage precinct.[1]

The Australian Heritage Places Inventory list for Tasmania numbers 6,850 records, including 2301 listed on the Register of the National Estate. (4549 extra).
  • One way or another I am working to make a definitive illustrated description of Tasmanian built heritage before all this information is lost.
