A recent examination of the management histories of a select number of rock art sites in the Grampians-Gariwerd National Park in southwest Victoria, Australia, has found that management decisions, research and site interventions were often taking place in ignorance of what had gone before. Heritage site management is often conducted in an ad hoc manner with limited understanding of past planning and management. A framework for understanding the management history of indigenous rock art sites is presented. With some modification the framework could be applied to other indigenous cultural sites.
