Internationally, Australia has the most developed heritage jurisprudence because of the use of the World Heritage Convention in Federal and State disputes, and at the State and Territory level, the laws have achieved a rare consistency across the jurisdictions. Until now, however, there has been no comprehensive treatment of this subject. Heritage Law in Australia fills this gap. It is a clear and concise text that will be of use to anyone wanting a general overview of the development of heritage law in Australia. The text offers a systematic analysis of the range of natural and cultural heritage law by discussing heritage law not only by reference to a limited sets of Acts of the Australian Parliaments, the Heritage Acts, but as illustrating what is happening more generally in environmental law and regulation.
