Our Aboriginal Heritage

Aboriginal sites are an important part of the heritage of the whole community. They are of immense cultural, scientific, educational and historic interest.

Aboriginal heritage sites provide Aboriginal people today with an important link to their present and past culture.

Many Aboriginal sites are fragile and can easily be damaged. When they are destroyed or damaged, information about past cultural and environmental changes may be lost forever. Information about the people who lived here for the last 45,000 years can only be obtained through the archaeological investigation of these sites.
