    Peter Hillig in his capacity as administrator of Worimi Local Aboriginal Land Council v Minister for Lands for the State of New South Wales [2005] FCA 1713

    Between: Peter Hillig in his capacity as administrator of the Worimi Local Aboriginal Land Council (APPLICANT) AND the Minister for Lands for the State of New South Wales and New South Wales Native Title Services Ltd (RESPONDENTS)

    Judge: Bennet J

    Where Made: Sydney

    This is an unopposed determination and a non-claimant application under the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth).

    Native title was found not to exist in the determination area.

    Under the Aboriginal Land Rights Act 1983 (NSW) the Worimi Local Aboriginal Land Council (the Council) is prevented from dealing with the land it holds if that land is subject to any native title rights, unless the land is the subject of an approved determination of native title under the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth). The Council made an application for such a determination and the respondents to the application notified the court in writing that the application was unopposed. The parties have signed a proposed 'Short Minutes of Order'.
