As one of the oldest living peoples on Earth, the culture of Aboriginal Australians is rich, complex and enduring. The wellbeing of Aboriginal people is connected to the land. The Department of Aboriginal Affairs (DAA) works with Aboriginal people to promote their culture and to protect and manage places and objects of significance to Aboriginal heritage.

Please note: The Section 5 of the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1972 guidelines document has been removed and is under review. Please contact Heritage Enquiries on 6551 7950 if you have any questions.
