The Burra Charter defines the basic principles and procedures to be followed in the conservation of Australian heritage places.

In 1979, the Australia ICOMOS Charter for the Conservation of Places of Cultural Significance was adopted at a meeting of Australia ICOMOS (International Council on Monuments and Sites) at the historic mining town of Burra, South Australia.[1] It was given the short title of The Burra Charter.

It has now been adopted by heritage groups in South Africa.
