Proceedings of the 2018 Australia ICOMOS Cultural Landscape Symposium Diversity and the Implications for Management (Australia ICOMOS, 2020)



Held in Hobart, Tasmania, in November 2018, the Symposium was an initiative of the Australia ICOMOS National Scientific Committee on Cultural Landscapes and Cultural Routes.

The volume provides an insight into the current state-of-play in the recognition and management of cultural landscapes. The Proceedings include nine papers from the 2018 Symposium, and collectively reflect a diversity of cultural landscapes and their different management needs. The papers focus largely on the Australian situation, although there are two overview papers that discuss the international framework for cultural landscape recognition and management and one paper focussed on an international urban landscape (Rio de Janeiro). Some papers explore the frameworks for identifying and managing broad classes of cultural landscape, while others look at how the diverse values of cultural landscapes need to be recognised and provided for in managing such landscapes. The papers explore a diversity of urban and rural cultural landscapes, as well as protected area landscapes and the challenges of integrating and managing their natural-cultural attributes and values.
