Viewing platform upgrades for Rocky Cape's Aboriginal heritage sites

13/02/2018

Two viewing platforms have been replaced as part of visitor facility improvements at Rocky Cape National Park on the North-West Coast. The platforms are at the Lee Archer Cave and South Cave sites, which have highly significant Aboriginal heritage values.


These sites contain considerable cultural material in the form of middens and artefacts that have been deposited over many thousands of years. The caves are still used by the Tasmanian Aboriginal community for shelter and ceremony.


Archaeological study of the Aboriginal sites within the national park has revealed important historical information on the cultural practices, as well as the lifestyle and migration routes of Tasmanian Aboriginals, further highlighting the importance of preserving these signficant sites.


The $80,000 project was funded by the Tourism Infrastructure in Parks fund.
