A Regulation to implement selected provisions of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Heritage Protection Act which aims at the preservation and protection from injury or desecration of areas and objects in Australia and in Australian waters, being areas and objects that are of particular significance to Aboriginals in accordance with Aboriginal tradition. For the purposes of the definition of "community area" in subsection 21A(1) of the Act, each area specified in Schedule 4, being the area in Victoria of a local Aboriginal community within the meaning of Part IIA of the Act, is declared to be the area of that community for the purposes of that Part. For the purposes of subsection 21C (1) of the Act, the prescribed form of emergency declaration is the form in Schedule 2. Some provisions concern temporary declarations and declarations of preservation. For the purposes of subsection 21L (1) of the Act, the provisions of the Lands Acquisition Act 1955 in relation to the acquisition of land by compulsory process shall, so far as applicable, apply in relation to: (a) Aboriginal places; and (b) Aboriginal folklore and Aboriginal objects as if the references in that Act to land were references to any part of that folklore or any of those objects.
