The principal objectives of the Australian Rock Art Research Association are to provide a forum for the dissemination of research findings; to promote Aboriginal custodianship of sites externalising traditional Australian culture; to co-ordinate studies concerning the significance, distribution and conservation of rock art, both nationally and with individuals and organisations abroad; and to generally promote awareness and appreciation of Australia’s pre-Historic cultural heritage.
AURA is involved in the protection and preservation of rock art in Australia and elsewhere, as well as in the support of Aboriginal people and of rock art scholars in developing countries. AURA is a registered charity.
AURA has significantly changed government attitides to the immovable cultural heritage, and to Indigenbous aspirations.
