2001 Making Tracks

Making Tracks
From Point to Pathway: the Heritage of Routes & Journeys

This conference aims for a broad understanding of Australian cultural routes. This will include their physical form, extent and patterning in the Australian landscape. It will also examine how routes are made and used, for a wide variety of social and cultural purposes. The focus is on routes in Australia, particularly in Central Australia, but it will also highlight case studies from the Asia-Pacific and global contexts as part of ICOMOS’ international initiative. Making Tracks is a conference for people who are involved with heritage places – owners, managers, researchers, interpreters and visitors.

Venue: Alice Springs Resort, Central Australia

Date: 23-27 May 2001
