Reshaping Queensland’s cultural heritage laws
We want to hear your views on proposed changes to the laws for recognising, protecting and conserving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural heritage.
This consultation is a key step in finalising the review of the Cultural Heritage Acts:
- Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Act 2003
- Torres Strait Islander Cultural Heritage Act 2003
We have listened to feedback and ideas from previous consultation in earlier stages of the review. The changes now being proposed build on this feedback and reflect the latest approaches to cultural heritage protection and management in other Australian states and territories as well as important developments in Queensland, such as the Statement of Commitment to reframe the relationship between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the Queensland Government.
