Statutory Management Plan

Management of the Authority and of the Historic Sites is guided by the Port Arthur Historic Sites Statutory Management Plan 2008.

This plan provides a framework for the effective use, development and management of the Port Arthur Historic Sites, particularly in relation to their heritage values.

This management plan acts as an overarching policy document under which operate a number of secondary and tertiary plans, and various management documents and policy guidelines.

It sets out a summary of the Historic Sites’ heritage values, examines current management issues and provides strategies for effective conservation, tourism operations and visitor management.
