Winner: Shire of Murray

The Shire of Murray was one of the earliest areas of European settlement in the State. Settled in 1834, it has a rich cultural heritage and many places of heritage significance still in use. The Council recognises its responsibility to provide for the protection of these assets, increasing budget expenditure for heritage management and conservation works, and has recently completed two major conservation projects in 2019, St John's Church and Exchange Hotel, both in Pinjarra.

Commendation: City of Cockburn

The Cockburn Libraries are a great place to connect ideas, inspiration, learning and the communities within the City of Cockburn. Created and supported by the Cockburn Libraries and the City of Cockburn, Cockburn History is a new local history website bringing together digitised library collections and a wealth of new historical research and writing. The website was launched in February 2019 and after two years of research, writing, and web designing, the library local history collections (digitised video, oral histories, photographs, and local magazine publications) were made accessible to the public.

Commendation: City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder

Located in the heart of the Goldfields-Esperance region, the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder is Australia's largest outback city with a population of over 30,000. The City is a dynamic regional centre with a rich and diverse indigenous and non-indigenous history and a high quality of life.

The City recognises that heritage is its past, present and future and that it provides a sense of place and time, identifiable landmarks and a sense of belonging. The City has always been proud of its heritage and this can be seen in the promotion of the heritage precincts of Burt and Hannan Streets.
