Our Conservation team have planned works in place for the coming months as per heritage management requirements for the up-keep of our World Heritage Site. Please see below the list of planned works in the coming months which may have small interruptions to the visitor experience around the works areas. We appreciate your understanding as we aim to preserve and maintain the site and its heritage aspects for future generations as well as the safety of our visitors and staff.
