This chapter explores recent developments in the management of Aboriginal values in forest environments. There is growing evidence that land managers have come to understand that the concept of Aboriginal heritage in NSW encompasses a range of issues and values which span the nature-culture divide. Equally, there is increased awareness of the fact that Aboriginal heritage is dynamic and complex, and not restricted to places and knowledge associated with the pre-contact period. Over the last thirty years, debates about the future of forested lands have played a significant role in the development of heritage management practice. From the fight for Mumbulla Mountain to the gazettal of new parks over areas logged for generations, Aboriginal issues have challenged and shaped the way we value and look after the land.
