Heritage Interpretation Plan

Our new Heritage Interpretation Plan provides a framework on how Infrastructure NSW, its development partners and those who engage with and work within the Barangaroo precinct can communicate the natural and cultural heritage values of the Precinct.

This Plan is consistent with our vision for Barangaroo, the history of the site, and our commitment to arts and culture and collaborative partnerships.


In consultation with our stakeholders, five interpretive themes were developed to represent what makes the Barangaroo precinct historically and culturally significant. Each theme relates to a range of stories and topics from pre-European history, post-European history, the present and the future of the site. Learn more about each theme in the Plan.


The Plan includes a range of recommendations and actions which are inter-connected and provide a framework for a long-term cohesive approach to interpretation. The recommendations relate to six key areas:

  1. Policies and procedures
  2. Digital interpretation
  3. Visitor facilities and services
  4. Physical interpretation
  5. Events, festivals and temporary interpretation
  6. Integration with contemporary interpretive projects

We will share further updates with our stakeholders and the community as we work to prioritise and implement these recommendations.
