The Aboriginal Heritage Act 1972 (AHA) protects all Aboriginal heritage sites in Western Australia, whether or not they are registered with the department.
Consent is required from the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs for any activity which will negatively impact Aboriginal heritage sites. Under the AHA, Aboriginal sites of outstanding importance may be declared Protected Areas. The AHA also provides protection for Aboriginal objects.
The Government of Western Australia acknowledges the traditional custodians throughout Western Australia and their continuing connection to the land, waters and community. We pay our respects to all members of the Aboriginal communities and their cultures; and to Elders both past and present.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are advised that this site may contain images of people who are deceased.
