Abstract

Because cultural heritage, including engineering heritage, is so diverse and occurs in very different environmental, social and economic contexts, tailored individual approaches are essential for many heritage places for good conservation outcomes. This paper looks at the recent management of two different Tasmanian engineering heritage examples - the Egg Island Canal (1850s) in the Huon and the Mountain Water Supply System (1866) in Hobart - which demonstrate this. These particular examples also demonstrate the importance in heritage conservation of proactive approaches and the involvement of all stakeholders who use, manage and value the system, not least community groups.
