Department of the Environment

The new revised Australian Government heritage website, which I spent 9 months writing, recently went live. Its launch was delayed by the change of government in late 2007 and re-jig of the Department of Environment. This project introduced me to the diversity and intrigue of Australia’s heritage, which includes places and items of natural, cultural and historic significance. I also learnt about the laws, institutions and international conventions that are designed to protect them. 

I edited approximately 200 pages of content about Australia’s listed heritage places and their management, contributed suggestions as to the site information architecture and content segmentation, selected images of heritage-listed places, and worked with department representatives to devise templates for future content updates. 

Client: Department of the Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts.

Project duration: May-December 2007

New site launched April 2008
