Historical Markers Program

Applications for the 2017/2018 Historical Markers Program have now closed. The 2018/2019 Historical Markers Program will re-open for applications in July 2018.

The Historical Markers Program has been developed in response to requests from the community to recognise places of historical and cultural importance. Council receives many such requests throughout the year and they will be managed through this program to ensure a consistent and accurate approach. This program takes inspiration from both the London Blue Plaques Scheme and the City of Sydney Green Plaques program.

Each year Council will fund and install up to five new historical markers.

The markers are cast in bronze with a consistent design, and include important dates, name of the person, place or event being recognised, and one line of text. Each marker will be installed at the most appropriate place at the site.

More detailed information to accompany the new markers will be available on Council’s website and in other formats as required. These will complement the many markers and plaques already in place throughout the Georges River local government area, creating a growing open-air museum of historical places.

Please see Georges River Council’s Historical Markers Policy for more details.
