Establishing a Heritage List

The Network Heritage List
Some time ago The Heritage Network called for nominations to a register of heritage opportunities listed in order of importance considering levels of significance, viability, need, existing support etc. Both cultural and natural sites/projects from anywhere in the world are eligible for inclusion but it is our intention, initially at least, to emphasis community heritage assets from Australian States and Territories. In accordance with our rules preservation of the 19th century iron monitor HMVS Cerberus will occupy the premier position with other positions subject to ongoing review and adjustment.
To nominate a site or project for inclusion on the list simply e-mail the Administrator (cpac@bigpond.com) for a nomination form, fill it in and return it. Alternatively you may post your nomination here ensuring as much information as posible is included, particularly a precise location and any relevant contact details. To watch this project develop please visit the Network Heritage List.

The Last Monitor

The Heritage Network - HMVS Cerberus, the world's last substantially intact monitor is at serious risk of being lost for ever if realistic government funding isn't forthcoming very soon. With the Victorian State Government's recent provision of a modest amount to secure removal of the ship's four RML cannons the fate of HMVS Cerberus would appear to rest with a successful outcome to her nomination for inclusion on the Australian Government's new "Federal Heritage List". Heritage Buffs and patriots can aid in the campaign by contacting your local Australian Commonwealth MP or the Hon Ian Cambell (Minister for the Environment & Heritage) to directly express support for inclusion of the Cerberus and further funding to secure her future viability. Find out more about this unique vessel and its place in maritime history with a visit to The Heritage Network.
