War-related heritage in Victoria: a report

War-related heritage in Victoria is a report that was produced from the results of a heritage survey that was commissioned by the Department of Planning and Community Development.

It offers a comprehensive overview of the extent and quality of heritage in Victoria related to Australia's defence forces and their past involvement in wars and peacekeeping activities. The report estimates the number of war memorials and other sites in the state, such as avenues of honour, commemorative buildings and former defence sites.

It also explores the preservation of honour rolls and other moveable heritage through a series of case studies involving collections in RSLs, local historical societies and community museums.

War-related heritage in Victoria will be of interest to heritage professionals, historians, students, teachers, members of the veteran community and others interested in the material culture associated with Australia's involvement in war.
