Summary
"This thesis has reviewed eight statutes enacted by the Commonwealth and South Australian governments for the protection of cultural heritage. It has examined the definitions and looked at the operations of the Acts, illustrated by three case studies. The study suggests a number of reform requirements for each Act so that Australia?s cultural heritage can gain better protection. The results indicate that terrestrial historic heritage is currently well protected by legislation and community attitudes, however better protection is needed for Indigenous heritage sites in South Australia. Underwater cultural heritage requires improved protection, best achieved through community education. Penalties under some Acts are also in need of review. Despite good intentions when implementing most legislation, without adequate political backing, including administration and resources, Australia?s cultural heritage will gradually diminish to the extent that archaeologists may not have a sufficient sample of sites to research in the future. It is recommended that further study of current cultural heritage legislation in Australia be undertaken, perhaps by a legal professional working with heritage professionals to attain a better understanding of all heritage issues" [Taken from abstract]
