Description

The project involved the production of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) under both State and Commonwealth legislation which evaluated multiple potential Second Sydney Airport sites options at Badgerys Creek and the Holsworthy Military Training Area.

Our Role

NOHC conducted the Aboriginal cultural heritage assessment for the EIS.

Features

Aboriginal community consultation, archaeological field survey and site recording, analysis and report production. The archaeological survey conducted for this project remains the largest Aboriginal archaeological field survey program conducted to date within the Sydney Basin. The combined study area consisted of just over 200 square kilometres, of which 74 (35 %) was subject to comprehensive survey using a representative sampling strategy. Sixty one square kilometres of this area was situated within the rugged and dissected sandstone plateau and gorge country of the Holsworthy military training area. The analysis was based on 946 individual site recordings.
