Background to the ILUA

The Buurabalayji Thalanyji People were granted native title on 18 September 2008 in a consent determination of the Federal Court (Federal Court number WAD 6113 of 1998). The determination concerns 18,432 square kilometres of land and waters in the Pilbara region, near Onslow, Western Australia. The area also covers 13 pastoral leases. The Buurabalayji Thalanyji People have had to enter into two ILUAs, of which this ILUA is one, in respect to these pastoral leases in order to negotiate land use rights.
