Reshaping Queensland’s cultural heritage laws

Lodge a written submission

Please use this section to provide your written submission in response to the proposed changes to the Cultural Heritage Acts (Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Act 2003 and the Torres Strait Islander Cultural Heritage Act 2003).   The proposals outlined in the options paper are focused on three key areas based on consultation feedback to date and consideration of national, state and territory developments.  We will use your feedback to finalise the review of the Cultural Heritage Acts to ensure these Acts continue to protect and conserve Queensland’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural heritage, while facilitating business and development activity. You can upload a document or type directly into the text box provided.





Cultural Acknowledgement

We pay our respects to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ancestors of this land, their spirits and their legacy. The foundations laid by these ancestors - our First Nations peoples - gives strength, inspiration and courage to current and future generations towards creating a better Queensland.

We walk together on our shared journey of reconciliation where all Queenslanders will be equal and the diversity of Aboriginal cultures and Torres Strait Islander cultures and communities across Queensland are fully recognised, respected and valued by all.
