1.3.4.1 Description

Forty-one sociocultural assets were sourced from the Australian Heritage Database (Department of the Environment, 2013): 40 from the Register of the National Estate (Australian Government of the Environment, Dataset 1) and one from the National Heritage List (Australian Government of the Environment, Dataset 2). There were no sociocultural assets in the Namoi subregion that were sourced from the NSW Aboriginal Heritage Information Management System (Environment and Heritage, 2013). Thirty-one heritage and ten Indigenous assets were included in the asset database. Of the 31 heritage assets, 22 are considered water dependent, including 14 that are located within the maximum flood extent and eight assets that are assumed to contain water‑dependent features.

Ten Indigenous sociocultural assets were sourced from existing Commonwealth heritage databases (Australian Government Department of the Environment, Dataset 1) and are included in the asset list. Eight of the Indigenous assets are considered to be water dependent based on the presence of floodplain and wetland areas within their spatial extent.
