Welcome to Interpretation Australia
Interpretation Australia is a membership-based organisation dedicated to supporting and advancing the profession of natural and cultural heritage interpretation across Australia.
Many IA members are employed by government agencies. Other members are consultants who work in interpretation development, visitor research, writing, graphic design, multi-media, drama, placemaking and guiding. They provide services to agencies to develop and produce interpretive plans, interpretive media, and guiding programs.
IA membership benefits
IA offers useful resources for our members including a job and tender page where members can advertise, listing on our dedicated supplier registry which is accessible by non-members, and access to training and templates. Additionally, IA also aims to undertake a national event each year, which either takes the form of a conference where members present their own experience and research; or as a workshop and skill sharing exercise. Smaller, state based events are also offered during the year.

What is interpretation…
IA believes that interpretation enriches our lives through engaging emotions, enhancing experiences and deepening the understanding of places, people, events and objects from the past and present. Interpretation communicates ideas, information and knowledge in a way which helps people to make sense of their environment.
