Greater Shepparton City Council Mayor Cr Shane Sali said “The Committee has a valuable role to play for our community, ensuring our heritage is recognised and preserved for future generations.”
“Cultural heritage comes in many forms, not just buildings. We have tangible heritage such as buildings, monuments, landscapes, books, works of art and artefacts, and intangible cultural heritage such as folklore, traditions, language and knowledge.”
“We have such a wide variety of cultural heritage places of local, regional and international significance dating back over 40,000 years,” said Cr Sali.
