No logging for Tas Aboriginal rock art site

Extract from Australian Broadcasting Corporation - ABC Online, on 5 December 2003


Forestry Tasmania will not log the area where 35 ancient Aboriginal paintings have been found in the State's south-western wilderness.

The rock art is believed to be up to 11,000-years-old.

The Aboriginal Land Council is now putting together a report on the best way to protect the rock art.

Forestry Tasmania's Kim Creak says the paintings are in the middle of a forestry logging coupe.

"Certainly no activity will be taking place until such time as we've seen the report and what impacts that might have," she said.

"We'll do everything we can to work with the land council to deliver that outcome in the best possible way."

The location of the rock art is being kept a secret.
