Aboriginal Heritage

The Wathaurung Aboriginal Corporation (WAC), trading as Wadawurrung, is the Registered Aboriginal Party (RAP) for Wadawurrung country. WAC has a statutory role in the management of Aboriginal heritage values and culture within our region, under the Victorian Aboriginal Heritage Act, 2006. www.wathcorp.com.au

The responsibilities of the RAP are:

  • Evaluating Cultural Heritage Management Plans
  • Providing advice on applications for Cultural Heritage Permits
  • Making decisions about Cultural Heritage Agreements
  • Providing advice or application for interim or ongoing Protection Declarations

The Barwon coastline is rich in Aboriginal Cultural Heritage with sites of significance registered with Aboriginal Affairs Victoria. As the coastal landscape changes over time we discover additional sites worthy of protection. Do your bit to preserve an ancient history by staying out of the dunes that protect this important historical information. Together we can make a difference.
