Plans have been discussed over the return of sacred petroglyphs to the Coast at a community event hosted by the Circular Head Aboriginal Corp.
CHAC board member Selina Colegrave said Sunday marked "the beginning of many more conversations and further action".
"It was a great day of learning. As a community we need to be getting the word out there from the local people," Mrs Colegrave said.
"This is the start of coming together as a community."
The petroglyphs are originally from Marrawah, and in 2020 were given to the Tasmanian Aboriginal Land Council after the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery recognised they belonged with the Aboriginal community.
CHAC have been fighting to have them returned to Circular Head.
"They're from our area, our community should have a say as to where the petroglyphs go," she said. "It's currently up to the Land Council where and how they're returned to country. Last year CHAC told them we'd like them returned to locals to caretake them.
"Not many people in the area even know about the petroglyphs because they've been away so long that it has missed a generation.
"We've got a new heritage centre being built which would be an option for housing them. It would protect them, and let locals have access to them.
"When it's not locked up for certain people, everyone can learn. Information is key."
Mrs Colegrave said she was feeling optimistic after the meeting that there was strong community support, with more than 100 people turning up to the event.
She said this would be used to push the cause further, with direct feedback forms collected. When this is all collated it will be put to the relevant parties.
Also in focus at the meeting was the proposed Robbins Island wind farm project, with the Circular Head Aboriginal community calling for greater research into, and recognition of, the cultural significance of the selected site.
"Many locals are unaware of how important Robbins Island was for all the tribes in the area," Mrs Colegrave said.
"We want to see a more thorough Aboriginal heritage report, in consultation with the local Aboriginal corporation.
"Robbins Island is a very significant spot.
"The current heritage report identified 24 cultural sites there, which is huge in itself."
There is also community opposition to the wind farm due to concerns around the impact on protected habitats and migratory shorebirds.
UPC renewables said their Aboriginal Heritage survey methodology is approved by Aboriginal Heritage Tasmania.
In response to concerns over the environmental impact, a spokesperson said "UPC's assessment on the impact on mutton birds on Robbins Island is very low. This view has been informed by our own assessment and the experience of other wind farms operating near mutton bird rookeries on the north west coast."
