Aboriginal Heritage Act 1979 [ceased]

Responsible Minister

Premier: Gazette 22.3.2018 p1256

This Act has never been brought into operation but has not been expressly repealed. Section 9 of the Roxby Downs (Indenture Ratification) Act 1982 applies this Act to certain operations. Apart from that, the Act has been effectively impliedly repealed by the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1988 and is, consequently, treated as a historical version.
