Summary Information:
The Eastern Kuku Yalanji, the State of Queensland and Brandt Indigenous Land Use Agreement (ILUA) was agreed between the State of Queensland (APPLICANT); John Kevin Brandt; Michael Brandt; and native title parties Agnes Walker, Eileen walker, Hazel Douglas, John Walker Jnr, and Peter Fischer on 19 October 2007.

This ILUA includes agreement that 'future acts' may be done. The parties also agree that the right to negotiate provisions of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) do not apply to future acts, as the alternative consultation provisions are to be followed instead. Under this Act any activity, such as a grant of land, that may affect native title rights is defined as a 'future act' and must comply with the future act provisions of the Act in order to be valid.
Detailed Information:
This ILUA provides for the future tenure arrangements and their impact on native title over the area.

Approximately 250,000 hectares of land were given back to the Eastern Kuku Yalanji people with 64,000 hectares designated as freehold land to be used for conservation with 16,500 of this proportion to be set aside for use as residential or economic development. This ILUA is one of fifteen that has been negotiated as part of that hand-back. The majority of the land will be co-managed by the Eastern Kuku Yalanji people and the Queensland Parks & Wildlife Service (QPWS) (The Australian). At the sign-off in Wujal Wujal in April 2007, then premier Peter Beattie congratulated all involved in the process, saying that it was 'the most significant ILUA [sic] ever struck in Queensland.'
