DT: Protecting Natural and Cultural Values of Blue Hole

Manage access to Blue Hole to ensure the protection of the site’s significant cultural values.

Why it is important?

With the management of Blue Hole now returned to the local Traditional Owners, there is a good opportunity to protect the significant cultural values of the area. Access to the site needs to be managed to further protect this site.

Examples of Local Action

  • Negotiate an agreement between state government and Traditional Owners over the access road to Blue Hole, to strengthen the protection of the significant cultural site.
