The Bathurst Region Heritage Awards are a partnership project between the Bathurst & District Branch of the National Trust and Bathurst Regional Council.
Introduced in 2017, the awards recognise local projects which demonstrate an outstanding contribution to protecting, enhancing and promoting the unique heritage of the Bathurst region.
The major award, The Chifley Award, is awarded to a project which demonstrates an outstanding contribution to the built, natural or cultural heritage of the Bathurst region.
Highly commended awards and certificates of appreciation will also be presented to successful award nominees.
Nominations for the Awards will open in February 2018.
The Bathurst Heritage Awards will be presented at the Bathurst Macquarie Heritage Medal Awards event on Saturday 5 May, 2018 when the winner of the 2018 Bathurst Macquarie Heritage Medal will be announced.
