2016 Gladstone Harbour Report Card Cultural Health Results Summary
The Cultural grade was determined by measuring people’s sense of place (six indicators) and cultural heritage of Gladstone Harbour (two indicators).
The inclusion of the Indigenous cultural heritage indicator groups is a ground breaking development for waterway report cards. However, while the combination with the sense of place indicator group increased confidence in this component, overall the score was slightly lower than 2015.
