About Us

We are the heart of Brisbane’s cultural heritage & social history

Our primary aim is to connect you with our member sites located across the greater Brisbane area. The story of Brisbane is a journey of discovery and each member site listed on our website and in The Heritage Guide adds a special chapter to Brisbane’s story. It is our vision to inspire residents and visitors to value, enjoy and share our rich heritage and unique stories.

History

Established in 2001, Brisbane Living Heritage (BLH) was formed out of a Brisbane City Council initiative. The initial spark of an idea was to connect Brisbane’s small museums and heritage places within a larger network to help them with promotion and raise awareness of their valuable work. It was decided that this network or alliance would be based on approved membership to Brisbane Living Heritage.

Today there are more than 90 member organisations in BLH comprising museums, galleries, heritage sites, historic houses and gardens and historical societies.

BLH is proudly supported by Brisbane City Council.
