Report a Site

To provide information about a possible Aboriginal Site please use the Heritage Information Submission Form.

The Form can also be used to provide information about a registered Aboriginal Site or other heritage place that is additional to information already held by the Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage (DPLH).

Refer to Site Search if you wish to access online or hardcopy information held by DPLH in relation to registered Aboriginal Sites and other heritage places.

Under section 15 of the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1972 the reporting of a site is compulsory:

Any person who has knowledge of the existence of any thing in the nature of Aboriginal burial grounds, symbols or objects of sacred, ritual or ceremonial significance, cave or rock paintings or engravings, stone structures or arranged stones, carved trees, or of any other place or thing to which this Act applies or to which this Act might reasonably be suspected to apply shall report its existence to the Registrar, or to a police officer, unless he has reasonable cause to believe the existence of the thing or place in question to be already known to the Registrar.
