Abstract

Sites containing aboriginal flaked stone implements have been discovered in the
Queenstown area, some 30 km inland from the west coast of Tasmania. The sites occur
mainly on low ridge tops along the East Queen River and Reservoir Creek, and have been
exposed only after removal of the original cover of rainforest and peat around the
mine area. They suggest extensive inland habitation by the aborigines prior to the
establishment of the now-widespread rainforest.
