The 127 sociocultural assets were sourced from the Australian Heritage Database (Department of the Environment, 2014; Australian Government Department of the Environment, Dataset 2, Dataset 3, Dataset 4). No further sociocultural assets were nominated following the Maranoa-Balonne-Condamine asset workshop in Toowoomba in December 2014. Sociocultural assets in the Maranoa-Balonne-Condamine subregion include the National Heritage-listed Gondwana Rainforests of Australia and the Taroom Aboriginal Reserve, which are considered to be water dependent.
The water-dependent asset register for the preliminary assessment extent (PAE) of the Maranoa-Balonne-Condamine subregion contains 79 sociocultural assets that are considered to be water dependent based on the presence of floodplain and wetland areas and shallow groundwater within their spatial extent. These include 39 of the 68 built heritage and 11 of the 14 war memorials in the asset list that are classed as heritage sites. Three of the ten Indigenous sites listed in the Australian Heritage Database are considered to be water dependent. Twenty-six recreation areas, which include national parks and areas of remnant vegetation, are considered to be water dependent based on the presence of floodplain and wetland areas and shallow groundwater.
Meetings have been held with Indigenous knowledge holders in the Maranoa-Balonne-Condamine subregion to gain an understanding of Indigenous cultural water-dependent assets.
