Australia’s Underwater Cultural Heritage
This conference’s primary objective is to continue to encourage the Australian Government towards immediate ratification of the UNESCO 2001 Convention for the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage to meet the international best practice for management of underwater cultural heritage. The Conference themes highlight the variety and significance of our underwater heritage in Australian waters and overseas, and the significant positive value that Australia’s ratification would have in the region.
