Background to the ILUA

Native Title History

The Dauan People lodged an application for the recognition of native title rights and interests over Dauan Island in 1998 (Federal Court No: DG6248/98). In 2000 the Federal Court of Australia handed down the consent determination Dauan People v State of Queensland [2000] FCA 1064 which recognised that the Dauan People held native title rights and interests in relation to approximately 355 hectares on Dauan Island. The native title rights are held in trust by the Daunalgaw (Torres Strait Islanders) Corporation. The orders regarding the native title rights and interests were made in respect of land that was either unallocated crown land, reserved land or land already held by, or for the benefit of, Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander People. The claim excluded certain roads, Crown Reserves for State Schools, and particular land used by the Telstra Corporation and the Ergon Energy Corporation.
