The Western Tasmania Aboriginal Cultural Landscape includes some of the best evidence of the lifestyle of Aboriginal people in this region of Tasmania.
Dotted along the wind-swept coastline are the remains of numerous hut depressions found in Aboriginal middens. These huts and middens are the remnants of an unusual specialised and more sedentary Aboriginal way of life that began almost 2000 years ago and continued up to the 1830s, based on the hunting of seals and land mammals, and the gathering of shellfish.
The Western Tasmania Aboriginal Cultural Landscape was added to the National Heritage List on 8 February 2013.
