For Grampians Projects
Indigenous heritage is at the forefront of the third round of the Morrison Government’s National Heritage Grants with more than $5.7 million in funding for 25 projects, helping to create jobs, boost visitor numbers and protect historic sites across the country.
Member for Wannon, welcomed the announcement of two successful projects in the Grampians National Park.
The ‘Gariwerd Rock Art Management Forum’ attracted funding of $192,500 and will bring together Indigenous rangers from across Australia to discuss best practice rock art conservation and cultural heritage management.
The second project will see Nature Glenelg Pty Ltd funded $198,000 to document the health of the Wannon River in the Grampians National Park. This will include undertaking ecological and hydrological assessments along the Upper Wannon River to identify the impacts associated with the past 50 years of artificial diversions of the upper Wannon River tributaries.
“These projects continue to ensure the heritage values of the National Park are developed, whilst recognising and protecting the the park as a place of national and cultural significances”, said Mr Tehan.
