Established in 1996, Kayandel Archaeological Services is a premier provider of Cultural Heritage and Archaeological consulting services throughout New South Wales. Kayandel began as a small company focusing on Indigenous Heritage, but overtime we have expanded to incorporate Built Heritage and Historic Archaeological skill sets. We pride ourselves on providing the highest quality professional archaeological and cultural heritage services to our clients through thorough conservation assessment and planning.
In an environment of rapid suburban development and changing urban landscapes, assessment and management of heritage places, both Indigenous and European, is fast becoming an integral part of the development process. Kayandel's specialist heritage consultants are experienced in undertaking these assessments and providing tailored advice and management solutions.
While some smaller assessments can be undertaken as desktop studies, others will require fieldwork in the form of site survey, archaeological test excavation, or archival recording. Kayandel's experienced project managers and network of subcontractors can ensure that your project and its associated fieldwork is handled in a timely and professional manner.

Several Rock Shelters containing Rock Art have been identified within the sandstone gorge around which Wilton, and now Bingara Gorge, have been constructed. Detailed recording of these sites required creating measured drawings of the shelters, sketching and photographing the art, and digitally manipulating images to determine the extent of all art present within the shelter.
