1.3.4 Sociocultural assets


Forty-one sociocultural assets were sourced from the Australian Heritage Database, including 31 classed as heritage sites and ten classed as Indigenous sites. Twenty two of the heritage site assets and eight of the indigenous site assets are considered to be water dependent based on the presence of floodplain and wetland areas within their spatial extent. None of the assets provided by the former Namoi Catchment Management Authority are classified as sociocultural. The Namoi Asset workshop held in July 2014 did not identify additional sociocultural assets.

Meetings have been held with Indigenous knowledge holders in the Namoi subregion to gain further understanding of Indigenous cultural water‑dependent assets.
