Naming of Places
Welcome to Country
Under Section 17 of the Aboriginal Heritage Act it is an offence to knowingly disturb an Aboriginal site in any way without authorisation from the Registrar of the Department of Indigenous Affairs (under Section 16) or the Minister (under Section 18). In this context then, it is advisable to first find out if there are Aboriginal sites on your land that may be inadvertently disturbed as part of your development.
You can use the Heritage Council System to check if there are Aboriginal sites already recorded on or near your project area http://inherit.stateheritage.wa.gov.au/Public/ . If no sites are listed it is most likely either that no previous heritage survey work has been undertaken or that sites that have been found have not been reported to the Heritage Council. There are very few parts of Western Australia where you wouldn’t expect to find Aboriginal sites.
