The Burra Charter and the associated series of Practice Notes provide a best practice standard for managing cultural heritage places in Australia. The Charter was updated in 2013, so if you are referencing an earlier version it might be worthwhile getting the update.
The Burra Charter
First adopted in 1979, the Burra Charter is periodically updated to reflect developing understanding of the theory and practice of cultural heritage management. The current version of the Burra Charter was adopted in 2013.
