Aboriginal and dual naming

​The Aboriginal and Dual Naming Policy provides for the naming of areas that have significance to Tasmania's Aboriginal history.

The policy provides for the preferential assignment of Aboriginal names for previously unnamed natural features or places - such as rivers and mountains - as well as allowing for the addition of Aboriginal names to existing official names of natural features or places.

The role of the Nomenclature Board in the implementation of this policy is outlined in the attachment below.
