Aborigines Protection (Amendment) Act 1963, New South Wales


The Aborigines Protection (Amendment) Act 1963 was an ‘An Act to remove certain restrictions imposed by the Aborigines Protection Act, 1909-1943, upon aborigines; for this and other purposes to amend the said Act’. It repealed some of the more restrictive elements of the Aborigines Protection Act. Magistrates could no longer send ‘mixed blood’ Aboriginal people to a place controlled by the Aborigines Protection Board; it was no longer an offence to take an adult Aboriginal person away from New South Wales and it was no longer an offence for non-Aboriginal and Aboriginal people to live together. This Act was repealed by the Aborigines Act 1969.
