The Federal Government is considering introducing a national lottery to help fund the preservation of some of Australia’s national icons – such as Bondi Beach.

The lottery idea is part of a new Australian Heritage Strategy outlined by the Environment Minister, Greg Hunt.

Other iconic heritage items that might receive project funding include Uluru, the Sydney Opera House, and Port Arthur in Tasmania.

The idea is similar to the Opera House Lottery -- which helped build its sails on Sydney Harbour -- which was scrapped some years ago (though Britain’s Heritage Lottery Fund will probably be the model for the new lottery).
