Friday 25 June 2021 saw the announcement that confirmed Working Heritage as the successful applicant in the DELWP-run EOI on the future management and adaptation of the former Kyneton Primary School  


As a Primary School, this site had served the community of Kyneton for 161 years.  It will soon take on a new role but one thing that won’t change is that the buildings and grounds will remain in public hands to be repurposed for the benefit of the Kyneton and district community.


Working Heritage will be working in partnership with Creative Victoria to deliver the project that will see the site's adapation to a new role both as a creative industry hub and a community hub.

As of 5pm Thursday 29 July 2021, a community survey will be open to the locals of  Beaufort and its surrounding areas. 


The purpose of the survey is to canvas Beaufort community opinion on the future use and improvement of the Beaufort Court House site.


Survey data will help Working Heritage prepare a strategic visionfor this valued community  site. 


Beaufort Court House  - located at 9 Livingstone Street, Beaufort - is the home of the Beaufort Historical Society, which has been operating at the location for almost 40 years.

The survey will close at 5pm on Thursday 19 August 2021.




Since the state of emergency was declared in Victoria in March 2020, Working Heritage has negotiated rent relief for our lessees across the sixteen heritage properties in our care.


As a self-funded not-for-profit, we have foregone crucial income to assist our tenants' survival though this unprecedented crisis. We are hopeful that Victoria’s collective effort to reduce infection rates will succeed and that recovery of community, cultural and business activity can soon commence, and ultimately succeed.


We look forward to visiting all of our tenants again and to seeing their businesses recover and thrive.
