A major new Australian Research Council Linkage project investigating Aboriginal rock art and cultural heritage management on Queensland’s Cape York Peninsula has recently been awarded. The $1.342 million project (LP1901001940), led by Notre Dame University, with Flinders University, Griffith University, University of Southern Queensland, the University of Tasmania and University of Adelaide collaborators, is a major partnership with a number of Indigenous community organisations and agencies in the region.

The University of Notre Dame Australia’s Nulungu Research Institute’s Dr Lynley Wallis and the team of experts and partners will spend the next five years mapping the largely unexplored Laura Sandstone Basin of Cape York Peninsula which hosts one of the richest bodies of rock art in Australia and the world.
