Aboriginal Culture & Heritage Sites
UNEOAC encourages everyone to be informed and respectful of the environment wherever you go. We are fortunate to exist alongside the oldest living culture and we have a duty to the Traditional Custodians to tread lightly. First Nations people have a strong cultural and spiritual connection to the land, with particular sites holding significance. By having the privilege to access these sites, we must learn from the past and do all we can to preserve them. Please ensure that you check with National Parks and the local land council if you are intending to leave the beaten track, to make sure these sites are preserved for generations to come.
Aboriginal Heritage is legally protected by The National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974 legislation in NSW. Recent changes to the Act make it a prosecutable offence to harm or desecrate an Aboriginal object or place whether you know its significance or not. You must do your due diligence to ensure your actions do not harm Aboriginal heritage. The Aboriginal Heritage Office provides a comprehensive overview of this Act.
The NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service also provide some great information about Aboriginal Culture in NSW.
