Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Guide and online fire recovery land management resources.
A guide to assist Landcare and environmental volunteer groups and networks who care for our landscapes
to better understand the state’s Aboriginal cultural heritage management process was released last October.
The Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Guide outlines the process for meeting the requirements of the Aboriginal Heritage Act 2006 and helps determine whether a Cultural Heritage Permit is required when undertaking on-ground works. The guide also provides the key Aboriginal cultural heritage contacts, including for the 11 Registered Aboriginal Parties in Victoria.
The guide is available on the Victorian Landcare Gateway at https://www.landcarevic.org.au/resources/aboriginal-cultural-heritage-guide/
The Victorian Landcare Gateway has a series of fire recovery webpages with practical natural resource management information for landowners who have been impacted by fire. This includes information on livestock, pastures, soils, native vegetation, water quality, fencing, weeds, wildlife, horticulture, assistance and support services available, and fire research and reports.
