Community Consultation

Virtus staff have extensive experience in Aboriginal consultation and other stakeholder groups.

Heritage assessments cannot be accurately undertaken without community consultation. We believe that Aboriginal people are the primary determinants of their cultural heritage and it is our privilege to work with them on country.  Our approach to community consultation in our assessments and investigations is respectful and proactive based on the ethical standards of the Australian Archaeological Association, and following statutory guidelines. We are also able to assist with community consultation on non-heritage related projects.

We are experienced in working with Aboriginal communities throughout Australia, particularly in NSW and Northern QLD. We collaborate with other community organisations such as the National Trust, local historical societies, and Local Aboriginal Land Councils and Traditional Owners on research and community heritage projects. We have an excellent reputation for undertaking Aboriginal consultation in NSW to the Heritage NSW requirements, with many Indigenous organisations and Heritage NSW.
