New cultural heritage fact sheet


 

The Federal Government have released a new fact sheet to raise awareness in the broader community about how movable cultural heritage is protected in Australia.

The fact sheet outlines key need-to-know information about importing and exporting movable cultural heritage. 

Cultural heritage property includes art works, historical artefacts, antiques, and natural objects such as fossils. 

If you buy any of these types of objects in Australia or overseas, you need to do your research and make sure that your purchase is compliant with Australian cultural property laws.
