Great heritage interpretation inspires, captivates and can breathe new life into places. As an essential part of the heritage experience, interpretation is a voice through which cultural heritage is conveyed to communities, visitors and the rest of the world. Our team includes both in-house historians and interpretation specialists—experts in historical research and analysis, and also memorable and accessible storytelling. We are at the forefront of interpretation methodology and our work encourages public discussion, debate and a wide appreciation of heritage values. We believe that imaginative interpretation can steal both hearts and minds, and ultimately help conserve Australia’s unique heritage for generations to come.

Heritage Interpretation Plans and Strategies

Unlocking, interpreting and presenting the stories of the past to the public is a wonderful way to add a new dimension and help conserve our cultural heritage. Often required as a condition of development consent, an interpretation plan or strategy enables you to tell the stories of heritage places through a range of digital and non-digital media including signage, artwork and trails.

Place Making and Cultural Tourism

Creative place making builds and sustains healthy communities and provides new generations with great places to live and work. GML’s experience with place making includes integrating heritage conservation in the planning of new residential communities, masterplanning the adaptive re-use of various sites and preparing new management plans for special places like Centennial Park and the Royal Botanic Gardens. Our involvement in the cultural tourism field manifests through site specific installations, heritage trails and strategic development advice.
