The Engineering Heritage National Marker commemorates the ship H.M.A.S. Diamantina and its engine room.

Engineering Heritage Australia, a special interest group within Engineers Australia, runs a program that recognises historically significant engineering works. Such works have a plaque on display, with a brief summary of the significance of the work. The program was established in 1984 with two categories of awards, "National Engineering Landmark" and "Historic Engineering Marker".

In 2009 these were renamed "Engineering Heritage National Landmark" and "Engineering Heritage Marker"; in 2011 and 2012 the awards were renamed and a third category added.  The current awards are:

  • Engineering Heritage Marker
  • Engineering Heritage National Marker
  • Engineering Heritage International Marker
