The World Heritage Management Plan for the Royal Exhibition Building and Carlton Gardens is being reviewed.

In 2020 the review process commenced with community consultation. You told us what is working, what is not and what could be improved for the future of the site. For findings please read the consultation summary report.

The five key documents that form the World Heritage Management Plan will be reviewed throughout 2020 - 2021. A diagram showing the documents can be viewed below.

You will be able to read and respond to each document as the review progresses and your feedback will ensure the site is appropriately managed, protected and celebrated for future generations to enjoy. Information on how to have your say will be available on this page.

For more detailed information about the site and review process, please read the Discussion Paper.

To read the existing World Heritage Management Plan and its component documents, please visit the Heritage Victoria website.
