Rachel Jackson, GML Heritage Principal and Company Director, has over 20 years’ experience in private heritage practice and working with the Commonwealth government.

Rachel specialises in heritage projects for Commonwealth agencies following the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (the EPBC Act), Australia’s central piece of environmental legislation for World, National and Commonwealth Heritage places.

The Commonwealth project work is often for large and complex sites and heritage places, where Rachel has assisted in achieving heritage compliance, good management and positive operational agency outcomes. She has provided strategic heritage and cultural landscape advice for iconic sites such as the Australian War Memorial, Kingston and Arthur’s Vale Historic Site, Norfolk Island, Port Arthur Historic Site, the Australian National University, the Australian Parliament House and Old Parliament House.
