The importance of cultural heritage to development of culture, connection to Country and wellbeing of our communities is fundamental.

The State of Victoria’s Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Report 2016-2021 details the ways in which Traditional Owners are experiencing cultural heritage, the paucity of control for cultural heritage by our people and the scale of loss.

On a national level, the State of the Environment Report Australia 2022 and 2020 Dhawura Ngilan: A vision for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage in Australia and the Best Practice Standards in Indigenous cultural heritage management and legislation, both call for stronger protections to ensure that cultural heritage continues to exist in the landscape, protected and respected.

Our work supporting a call for strengthening of the Victorian Aboriginal Heritage Act 2006 can be found on our News page.
