The Consultation Paper, released in March 2018, asked for stakeholder views on the effectiveness of the Act, any gaps in the legislation, and ideas on what modernised legislation should set out to do and how it should operate in the interests of all stakeholders.

The Department held a series of culturally appropriate workshops designed for Aboriginal people. My Heritage, My Voice and Working with Our Aboriginal Heritage workshops were held at locations across the State to enable Aboriginal people to have direct input into the review process.

All workshops were independently facilitated, recorded and transcribed.
