My aim here is to collect useful or engaging information some here on this site, most sitting elsewhere on the web. My main focus is on culturally significant places and objects, and on ways to conserve them.

Special places

Web sites devoted to places that people find significant, with their own explanations why. From time to time I add new sites, and short notes about them.

Heritage registers

Annotated links to information about all Australian com­mon­wealth and state heritage registers, plus a few examples from abroad.

Conservation charters

Links to the full text of manifestos, treaties and charters. Some of the documents are here on this site; most are external links.


A collection of carte-de-visite photographs by nineteenth century Queensland photographers.

Other stuff

Mostly copies of obscure but useful documents.
