Talking About Stones

Want to find out more about the stone tools you have found on your property?

Aboriginal stone artefacts are regularly found on farming land in regional Australia. Yet there is a lot of uncertainty about what to do with them.

Help us start a conversation between landholders, local Aboriginal groups, and local museums about the future care of these remarkable collections.

In a series of information sessions, archaeologists, geologists and Indigenous knowledge holders will be on hand to help you learn more about these objects.

Share your knowledge and experience with experts in the field.

Join the conversation today, and help preserve history for the future.
