World Heritage-listed Fraser Island 

ARCHAEO has worked in close cooperation with the Butchulla people (the Traditional Owners of World Heritage-listed Fraser Island and the adjacent mainland) on a large number of projects since 2005.

Simon Gall is a member of the Fraser Island World Heritage Area Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC), which provides advice to the State and Commonwealth governments on the management and preservation of the island's Outstanding Universal Values (OUV) and has a standing invitation to attend Fraser Island World Heritage Area Indigenous Advisory Committee (IAC) meetings.

A key component of this work has been the identification and recording of archaeological and cultural sites, the preparation of heritage impact assessments and the development of interpretation and visitor management strategies in conjunction with Butchulla Rangers employed by the Queensland Department of National Parks, Sport and Racing (NPSR).

A detailed understanding of the OUVs of Fraser Island and their subsequent protection is an integral part of this work, which includes a strong focus on the development of high-level interpretation and sustainable tourism strategies. This includes a key role in developing management and interpretation strategies for high visitation sites such as Boorangora (Lake McKenzie), King Fisher Bay Resort and Indian Heads.

Archaeology for New Hope Coal's Colton Coal Project near Maryborough

On the mainland, ARCHAEO has been assisting the Butchulla people on a multitude of projects as both their cultural heritage technical advisor and employment service provider, including undertaking a range of cultural heritage surveys and archaeological mitigation and excavation programs.

In particular, ARCHAEO has been assisting the Butchulla people in undertaking cultural heritage survey and mitigation programs for New Hope Coal's Colton Coal Project near Maryborough since 2006. This project has included the negotiation of a cultural heritage management plan (CHMP), numerous cultural heritage assessment programs for both exploration programs and subsequently for the mining lease application area, which included the systematic survey of in excess of 1000 hectares of native bushland.

The subsequent archaeological mitigation and excavation program resulted in the recording and collection of in excess of 20,000 stone artefacts along with the identification of a scientifically significant subsurface archaeological resource that potentially dates back as far as the early to mid-Holocene.

Although work at this particular site is not yet complete it is considered that it may represent one of the most substantial artefactual samples ever collected in the region.
