The Aboriginal Heritage Property Search website provides the first step for land owners to determine whether there is a need to seek further advice about the presence of Aboriginal relics in an area.

This website undertakes a preliminary search of the Aboriginal Heritage Register and provides a result on whether there are registered Aboriginal relics in an area or a risk of impacting Aboriginal relics. It is important to check the Property Search website before undertaking activities that may impact on Aboriginal relics.

The Property Search website is intended mainly to assist small scale developments. Proponents or consultants working on public land or larger scale developments are advised to contact Aboriginal Heritage Tasmania directly.

The Property Search website provides the best available information about the presence of relics in Tasmania; however, the records are not complete. Obtaining a Search Record from this website does not exempt a person from their responsibilities under the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1975. Under the Act it is an offense to destroy, damage, deface, conceal or otherwise interfere with relics without a permit granted by the Minister. There is an obligation to report findings of relics as soon as practicable.

For further information please contact Aboriginal Heritage Tasmania on 1300 487 045 or at aboriginal@heritage.tas.gov.au
