A Coastwest/ Coastcare grant was awarded to the Western Australian Maritime Museum, Fisheries WA and associated government agencies and community groups to assess the extent of the archaeological evidence relating to the Batavia (1629) incident in the Wallabi Group, Houtman
Abrolhos. This report describes the work undertaken and makes management recommendations and suggests strategies to ensure that the heritage content of the sites is protected and, at the same time, accessible for the benefit of the public. The objective is to improve interagency
cooperation, and provide both increased information to visitors and community involvement in management.
