WA Heritage Awards

The transformation of Fremantle's former Dalgety Wool Stores into modern apartments has received the top project award at this year's Western Australian Heritage Awards.

The awards, which are celebrating their 25th anniversary, recognise outstanding contributions to heritage conservation, adaptive reuse, promotion, tourism and interpretation.

International metals conservation expert Dr Ian MacLeod, volunteer Dr Dorothy Erickson and Committee for Perth chief executive officer and former Heritage Council chairwoman Marion Fulker were recognised for their significant contribution to heritage alongside Friends of Australian Rock Art and Engineering Heritage WA.

The restoration of North Fremantle's former grand residence Hillcrest into a contemporary nursing home and refurbishment of the 1870s Gallop House in Dalkeith were also commended.  Busselton's Jetty Experience, Roebourne's Ngurin Bush Tucker Trail and Geraldton's Monsignor Hawes Heritage Centre received top honours in the tourism and interpretation categories.
