About this assessment
The Australian Heritage Council found Wurrwurrwuy, NT, is a place of outstanding national heritage significance.
Wurrwurrwuy is the Yolngu name for an area in north-east Arnhem Land where 47 rare Aboriginal 'stone pictures' lie. They record the history of trepang (sea cucumber) trade between the Yolngu of Arnhem Land and Macassans from Sulawesi in Indonesia.
The Council's final assessment report as given to the Minister is attached.
In some cases the Minister will have made amendments to such matters as boundaries, values and descriptions, before listing the place. For final listing data visit the Australian Heritage Database or the National Heritage Listing for Wurrwurrwuy.
