The Budj Bim Cultural Landscape in south west Victoria was inscribed in the World Heritage List in July 2019.

It marked the culmination of a long campaign, led by the Gunditj Mirring Traditional Owners Aboriginal Corporation, for recognition of one of the world’s most ancient and extensive aquaculture systems. 

Budj Bim is also the first place in Australia to achieve recognition in the World Heritage List exclusively for its Aboriginal cultural significance.

Join Damein Bell, CEO of the Gunditj Mirring Traditional Owners Aboriginal Corporation and Justice Michelle Quigley, Supreme Court of Victoria and President Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal, for a discussion about the legal implications of the path to recognition and protection of significant cultural sites.

Supported by the Judicial Officers' Aboriginal Cultural Awareness Committee (JOACAC).

While this program is designed for judicial officers, the learning outcomes may be appropriate for some non-judicial roles. Please contact us to express your interest.

Location

Program will be held via webinar.
