3. [NEW ITEM] Harbour Trust invites volunteers to join the team at Middle Head – Sydney Harbour Federation Trust media release
Australia ICOMOS is committed to the dissemination of relevant cultural heritage information. In line with this commitment we are circulating the following media release from the Sydney Harbour Federation Trust, dated 11 October 2017.
The Harbour Trust is calling on avid gardeners to join the volunteer team at Middle Head to help maintain and improve the gardens around the ASOPA buildings.
The ASOPA buildings are a set of 15 barrack buildings that were used as accommodation and training for the Australian School of Pacific Administration (ASOPA) from 1947 to 1997. The area has been extensively enhanced with luscious and exotic gardens reflecting the tropical nature of the ASOPA institution. The gardens are now maintained by Harbour Trust volunteers.
“The volunteer gardeners at Middle Head have planted hundreds of plants since the program began in 2014,” said Harbour Trust CEO, Mary Darwell. “It’s a great role for those who love gardening, providing the opportunity to create and care for gardens on a very unique site and to connect with other like-minded people within the community,” said Ms Darwell.
During WWII, the site was an internment camp for Italian nationals who were employed as maintenance staff. Most recently the buildings were occupied by the AusAid Centre for Pacific Development and Training prior to its closure in 1998. The site is now a unique commercial precinct with the barrack buildings re-used as contemporary office and retail space by a range of small businesses.
Middle Head Gardeners meet Thursday mornings. No formal qualifications are required but people with green thumbs are highly regarded.
Harbour Trust volunteers all work within their own teams and are trained in their role, and also become part of the Harbour Trust volunteer team, are given a uniform and enjoy social opportunities, information sessions and other benefits. The role would particularly suit a local to the area.
The Harbour Trust is supported by more than 250 volunteers across our sites. Over the last year volunteers have provided close to 30,000 hours of dedicated and enthusiastic work.
To apply visit this link or for more information contact the Harbour Trust Volunteer Manager on (02) 8969 2112.
In today’s global world you may have drunk coffee from Brazil or a smoothie containing frozen fruit from China. You could be wearing clothes made in India, watching a TV made in Japan while sitting on a sofa containing wood from Argentina on a laminate floor manufactured in Sweden. All of this has been made possible by a rectangular steel box – the shipping container.
Container, an exciting new exhibition housed entirely in six 20-foot shipping containers at the Australian National Maritime Museum, will lift the lid on the history and impact of containerisation and the way the humble shipping container has revolutionised the way we live.
The exhibition opens in late October, when visitors can literally ‘step inside the box’ to learn about shipping, ports, cargo, the impact of containerisation on the ocean, the origins of everyday objects and even container architecture.
Inside the ‘Ship’ container, the history of the cargo industry before the invention of the container and the impact of its introduction are explored. From transporting goods in crates, bales, sacks and barrels loaded by hand, the container now allows the world’s 1.5 million seafarers to deliver 10 billion tonnes of trade each year.
‘Cargo’ looks at trade, customs, biosecurity and how perishable goods are transported around the world in the cold chain. The ‘Port’ container talks about the radical transformation of ports and port cities in Australia and around the world. It also gives visitors a peek behind the scenes at Port Botany, one of Australia’s busiest ports and the gateway for 99 per cent of New South Wales’ container demand.
‘Ocean’ looks at the challenges mass shipping poses to our oceans, including lost shipping containers, cargo spills and acoustic pollution, and the current focus on sustainable shipping.
The quirky and innovative ways containers are used beyond shipping, including ‘small homes’, food trucks, art installations and even swimming pools are uncovered in ‘Build’. ‘Things’ is a glass fronted container with a shop-front style window display demonstrating the origins of everyday objects in our homes. The total number of kilometres travelled by sea by all the products in this container is 887,082 km.
Peter Dexter AM, Chairman of the Australian National Maritime Museum said, “As an island nation, 99% of Australia’s trade is conducted by sea freight. The Container exhibition highlights the importance of this industry and how it touches all of us. We are excited to be sharing this often overlooked story to the many people who visit Darling Harbour in such an innovative way.”
The exhibition has been embraced by the shipping industry with a large number of its key organisations coming on board to provide essential support to tell this important story. Major sponsor is NSW Ports, who has played a key role in the development of the exhibition. Sponsors are ACFS Port Logistics, Maritime Container Services, DP World Australia and Smit Lamnalco. Supporters are Transport for NSW and Shipping Australia. The containers are supplied by Royal Wolf and the Precinct Partner is Property NSW. It is supported by the USA Bicentennial Gift Fund.
Container is located in front of the Australian National Maritime Museum’s Wharf 7 building on Pirrama Road. It opens on 26 October, is FREE and will run until late 2018 before touring locations across NSW. For further information visit this link.

Deakin University’s next Cultural Heritage Seminar will be a presentation by James Lesh (The University of Melbourne), on “’A Regional Conservation Manifesto’ and the Australian re-invention of urban heritage, ca.1975–ca.1985”.
Until recent years, the urban heritage of the Australian city has often been marginalised in global conservation narratives. This narrative might be encapsulated in the myth that the Australian city has little or no heritage worthy of meaningful preservation when assessed from a traditional ‘Western’ or ‘Eurocentric’ perspective. In response, since the 1970s, Australian heritage professionals—consultants, policymakers, activists and academics—have subverted and overcome this narrative. The fruits of their success is the robust Australian heritage management field. Particularly via the 1979 Australia ICOMOS Burra Charter, this field has equally impugned, influenced and improved global urban heritage practices. Examining events around the original Burra Charter, this paper argues that the historical erasure of Australian heritage empowered subsequent local, regional and global urban conservation activities.
James Lesh is a PhD Candidate at the University of Melbourne. He recently returned from a year based at the Menzies Centre for Australian Studies, King’s College London. His research explores global urban conservation since the early twentieth century. His PhD dissertation traces the long rise of heritage activism, regulation and management in the Australian city, via focussed studies of significant places, people and organisations. His next publication, “From modern to postmodern skyscraper urbanism and the rise of historic preservation in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth, 1969-1988”, will appear in the Journal of Urban History.

18. Information Request to Assist a Project on the Significance Assessment of Early Colonial Buildings in Tasmania
Anne McConnell (TAS) and Mary Knaggs (NSW) are currently undertaking a consultancy project for Heritage Tasmania in relation to early colonial buildings. The specific project scope is to look at improving the assessment of the significance of early colonial buildings and primarily residential buildings, for the Tasmanian Heritage Register.
The study is a methodological study that is aimed at providing Heritage Tasmania with finer grained assessment tools for the inclusion of such places on the Tasmanian Heritage Register. The project will examine assessment under each criteria for listing (ie. is important at the state level for historical, scientific, technical, rarity, representative, social, associational or aesthetic reasons), and has also been asked to provide advice on how rarity, integrity and the grouping of early colonial buildings affect their significance, hence their assessment and inclusion on the Heritage Register.
Our research to date indicates there are few similar methodological studies relating to early colonial period places or other period residences in Australia, or detailed recent studies of the types or significance of early colonial buildings that might assist us. We suspect there are such studies out there in the grey literature, therefore we are very interested in hearing of such studies.
If you are aware of such studies, or have undertaken such studies and are happy to share this information, please contact Anne McConnell by email.

Dr Edward Swarbreck Hall: Colonial medical scientist and medical activist
presented by Dr Carey Denholm and Prof Stefan Petrow
Dr Hall arrived in Van Diemen’s Land in 1833 and died in 1881. During this time he was the leading Catholic layman, physician within the convict service in eight locations, was a pioneer epidemiologist, nationally and internationally recognised proponent for immunisation and medical research, and active critic of the convict system. He was a prolific writer of many issues of the day to newspapers and appeared before tribunals and investigations. He regularly clashed with doctors, administrators, politicians and the clergy and demonstrated moral courage and passion in exposing the poor care of women and children at the Cascades Female Factory and the Queen’s Orphan Asylum. Dr Hall worked for a time at Saltwater River and Impression Bay. With the death of his son, Leventhorpe, in 1936 and none of the five daughters marrying, the family line died out. This presentation covers Hall’s remarkable life and his many contributions to Van Diemen’s Land.
Dr Carey Denholm AM is the former Professor and Dean of Graduate Research at the University of Tasmania (UTAS). After leaving UTAS in 2007 he held two professorial positions then returned to a private psychology practice with children and adolescents in Hobart. He is the author and co-author of a number of academic books and published works. Retirement afforded him the uninterrupted time required to work on this book with Professor Petrow.
Prof Stefan Petrow teaches and conducts research in the History and Classics discipline at UTAS. He has authored a number of books and has published numerous articles on Tasmanian history. He is a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society and serves on the Editorial Board of the Australian Dictionary of Biography.
