The Heritage Council has provisionally registered Mulligans Flat Aboriginal Stone Quarry.
Public consultation for the provisional listing has now ended. The Council’s final decision after reviewing the public consultation submissions will be added to the Heritage Register
We are looking at:
Mulligans Flat Aboriginal Stone Quarry is an important tangible link to Ngunnawal ancestors who called the region home. The site is a location where the metamorphosed volcanic tuff is exposed as surface cobbles as well as outcrops of bedrock and is of a good enough quality for flaking to produce useful implements that were important to past lifeways. The size and intactness of the site make it important for future research, but it is the ability of the place to evoke an important part of cultural history that makes it particularly important to the Ngunnawal and for the early history of the ACT.
Please note: the location of the site has been declared as restricted information under the Act, so the publicly available version has had this information redacted.
We will use your views to:
Thank you for your views about the provisional listing.
A common outcome of consultation is the Council confirming or rethinking what is included in their assessment, or what a final decision may look like. This can involve changing boundaries or adding or removing features that make up the significant fabric of the place.
