The Aboriginal Heritage Information Management System (AHIMS) Database

The NSW Aboriginal Land Council has made available a database on registered sites of Aboriginal culture and heritage significance to Local Aboriginal Land Councils across the Network. 

The Aboriginal Heritage Information Management Systems (AHIMS) contains detailed information on over 93,000 registered sites of Aboriginal culture and heritage significance across NSW.

Through a partnership with the NSW Government, Local Aboriginal Land Councils can access AHIMS via the NSWALC Geographical Information System (GIS) mapping-tool. 

LALCs will be able to see all recorded sites and places of Aboriginal culture and heritage significance within their Council boundary. 

The NSW Government will continue to administer the AHIMS database as prescribed in National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974. This will include registering new sites, answering enquiries and maintaining site-cards. 

If you would like more information about the AHIMS database, please contact the AHIMS team on 02 9585 6345 or ahims@environment.nsw.gov.au or click here to access the AHIMS Fact Sheet.
