Cultural heritage policy and manual

Transport and Main Roads has an Indigenous and Historical Cultural Heritage Organisational Policy and Cultural Heritage Process Manual that provide internal direction on:

  • statutory obligations
  • engagement with Indigenous people
  • roles and responsibilities
  • managing projects by incorporating processes for Indigenous cultural heritage into project management
  • entering agreements with Indigenous parties
  • processes to adopt for use in development projects.

Transport and Main Roads’ cultural heritage policy and manual are designed closely around guidelines published by the Department of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships and the Department of Environment and Science.

If you would like to request a copy of the Policy or Manual, please contact the Manager (Cultural Heritage & Native Title) at
