The Project will assist with the heritage conservation of Port Arthur Historic Site Management Authority managed Sites (but predominantly the Coal Mines Historic Site), and will potentially extend to the other Tasmania sites that comprise the Australian Convict Sites World Heritage Listing. Activities that protect, conserve and present the heritage values of these places will be undertaken. Recommendations in the Coal Mines Historic Site Master Plan (2013) will be pursued, including research activities, liaising with Aboriginal Heritage Tasmania to establish a protocol for engaging with the Aboriginal community, data capture for entry into the Port Arthur Historic Site Management Authority Asset Management System, visitor surveying, and establishing and staffing an information centre at the old Caretakers Cottage.
