Dent Island lightstation heritage management plan
The Dent Island lightstation has a heritage management plan to protect and manage this historic property.
We have worked with the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority to develop a heritage management plan to protect and manage the Dent Island lightstation.
About the heritage management plan
The Dent Island lightstation was established in 1879. The lightstation’s heritage management plan identifies its historical and cultural values and how to protect, conserve, tell and present its story.
The plan contains detailed information on the area’s history and cultural significance as well as the condition of structures and other physical elements.
This helps outline the current needs of managing and protecting the lightstation, which was included on the Commonwealth Heritage List in 2004 for its cultural significance.
