[[User:Gnangarra|Gnan]][[User_talk:Gnangarra|garra]] 23:07, 3 December 2012 (EST) :Not sure; perhaps some ''types'' of monuments. But I wonder whether regional towns have monuments such as town halls (some of them magnificent), court houses, railway stations. And would a register of Indigenous places be admissible? I don't know whether such a register exists, but I suspect the "monuments wouldn't all be in cities. [[User:Tony1|Tony1]] 23:56, 3 December 2012 (EST) ::The Townsville regional council has [http://www.townsville.qld.gov.au/townsville/heritage/Pages/heritagedatabase.aspx 1223 items in their local heritage register], so I imagine someone in Townsville would be kept busy! The quality and accessibility of local registers seems to vary wildly though, Moreton Bay (where I spent a lot of time growing up) doesn't seem to have their local one online at all. YMMV I suppose. [[User:Lankiveil|Lankiveil]] 21:27, 6 December 2012 (EST). == Online Heritage Registers == I've spent a bit of time tonight looking about for pre-existing lists of monuments that could form the basis of a list for WLM. The best place I found was here: http://www.heritage.gov.au/ahpi/index.html Unfortunately the site is a bit primitive, but pretty much everything seems to be there (except the ACT heritage register which always seems to return a blank). The problems are you can only view a handful of records at a time, and there's a pretty hilariously restrictive copyright notice over the whole thing which might make it impossible to use ([http://www.environment.gov.au/about/copyright.html better hope they don't see us as a "site that is not in the public interest"]!) Some local governments are quite forward looking and have snazzy tools available to search for local heritage sites. Some that I've found are: * [http://www.townsville.qld.gov.au/townsville/heritage/Pages/heritagedatabase.aspx Townsville] * [http://heritage.brisbane.qld.gov.au/heritage_register/search.do?action=startAdvanced Brisbane] * [http://www.gympie.qld.gov.au/documents/pdck001.pdf Gympie] Again, most of the time these are tied up in copyright. Not being a laywer, I don't know if that would stop us using a list of these properties as the basis for our competition. [[User:Lankiveil|Lankiveil]] 21:38, 6 December 2012 (EST). :They cant copyright data, the purpose of the list is to make these sites identifiable.
