Detailed Information:
The extract provided on the National Native Title Tribunal's Register of Indigenous Land Use Agreements gives very little detail of the content of this ILUA. However, in the Notice of Applications to Register Area Agreements on the Register of Indigenous Land Use Agreements (25 February 2009), it is stated that this ILUA and several other pastoral ILUAs that fall within the Gawler Ranges Native Title Claim are intended to provide for access to the ILUA area by members of the Gawler Ranges Native Title Group for the purpose of undertaking traditional activities on certain terms.

Background on native title in the ILUA area
