Aboriginal Heritage Council

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Aboriginal Heritage Council (AHC) is established under the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1975​​.  It replaces a non-statutory body of the same name.

The members of the Council are from the Tasmanian Aboriginal community who have extensive knowledge and experience in Aboriginal heritage management.

The Council provides advice and recommendations to the Director of National Parks and Wildlife, the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs and stakeholders on the protection and management of Aboriginal heritage in Tasmania.

The C​ouncil provides advice to the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment regarding the major study of Aboriginal cultural values in the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area (TWWHA).

The Aboriginal Heritage Council takes a partnership approach  in developing measures to promote public understanding and awareness of Aboriginal cultural heritage in Tasmania.

The Council’s views are increasingly sought on a range of heritage matters including land and coastal management, academic research projects, cultural​​ precincts and legislative changes.
