Published on 24 February 2023


Our Heritage Awards are closing on Friday 10 March, so this is your last chance to be recognised as a heritage champion!
We’re looking for those people and places demonstrating quality restoration and helping keep our local heritage preserved for the future.
The awards are a joint program of the National Trust Mornington Peninsula branch and the Mornington Peninsula Shire and this year we’re inviting nominations in the following five categories:

  • Restoration of a heritage place: have you brought back a building, landscape, wetlands, cemetery, monument, or heritage garden to its former glory?
  • Creative reuse of a heritage place: have you changed a disused heritage place and given it a different purpose?
  • Sustainability and/or greening of a heritage place: does your restoration demonstrate environmental sustainability?
  • Specialist heritage trade skills: are you a tradesperson who’s used specialist skills and traditional methods on a heritage place?
  • Excellence in interpretive signage: have you organised high quality signage to contribute to the heritage of our Peninsula? 

Nominations close on Friday 10 March 2023.

Simply visit our website and complete the simple online form. You will be prompted to describe how your nominated project, place or tradesperson demonstrated excellence in the award category. For more information visit:
