Think a coat of maroon paint, brass doorknobs and a century's worth of history.
That's what City Council plans to celebrate on Thursday by awarding locals who have contributed to the preservation of the city's heritage.
The awards are part of the annual National Trust Heritage Festival, which runs until the end of this month.
Awards will be presented to people who have participated in the Heritage Paint Scheme or had done up their home based on heritage concepts.
Council's Manager of Sustainability Peter Oldsen said that awards were for residential, industrial and commercial properties.
"There's six or seven major awards being offered," Mr Oldsen said.
"It's certainly to reinforce our heritage programs in the city and recognising those people who have done a very good job in heritage restoration and heritage works."
The awards presentation will take place at the Regional Art Gallery on Thursday evening.
