Key finding

There is consistent pressure on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural heritage from general land use activities.

The total number of cultural heritage search requests processed for land users has increased slightly from 14,847 searches in 2012 to 15,755 searches in 2015.

A land user can request a search of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural heritage database and register to assist in their consideration of the cultural heritage values of a particular area. A search of the database and register will, in part, help satisfy the cultural heritage duty of care established by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural heritage legislation.

The relatively stable number of search requests processed in 2014 and 2015 suggests a consistent pressure on cultural heritage from general land use activities.
