Tarrkarri Centre for First Nations Cultures

295 The Hon. J.M.A. LENSINK ().30 August 2023). What involvement has the Aboriginal Affairs agency and the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs had in decisions regarding the future of Tarrkarri—Centre for First Nations Cultures?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector): I have been advised:

No final decision has been made in relation to this project. The panel appointed to review Tarrkarri, constituted by Ken Wyatt AM, Bob Carr and Carolyn Hewson AO, handed down their final report in recent months. The government is closely considering the report and its recommendations. This work is being led by the Department of the Premier and Cabinet, as it was under the former Liberal government.
