Abstract

Cultural, scientific and political issues associated with the conservation of Australian Aboriginal rock images are discussed. The process of significance assessment and its essential role in the development of a management plan is outlined.

Emphasis is placed on the need for full recognition of Aboriginal ownership of Aboriginal cultural property, and the right of Aboriginal people to decide management and preservation policies for rock images is stressed.

The major causes of deterioration of painted images are summarised and some recommended treatment methods are reviewed. A project involving the removal of graffiti from a Townsville site is described. Current methods for painted graffiti removal are assessed and recommendations made. A case study of the conservation requirements of Aboriginal painted images in the Townsville region is included.
