Summary Information:
The Lilyvale Indigenous Land Use Agreement (ILUA) was agreed between the State of Queensland (APPLICANT) and Alison Liddy, Gavin Bassani and McGinty Salt.

The purpose of the ILUA is to provide for parts of the Agreement Area to be declared as a nature refuge and dedicated as a national park (Cape York Peninsula Aboriginal Land) under the Nature Conservation Act 1992 (Qld), and transferred as Aboriginal Land under the Aboriginal Land Act 1991 (Qld). The ILUA was registered with the National Native Title Tribunal on 27 January 2009.

It is one of two ILUAs between the State of Queensland and the Lama Lama Traditional Owners resolving tenure and future management of over 110,000 hectares (The Wilderness Society, 2008). See below for the link to the Running Creek Indigenous Land Use Agreement.

There is no specified period of operation of the ILUA.
Detailed Information:
According to ILUA, the parties consent to the acts of declaration, dedication and transfer of land and agree that the right to negotiate provisions under the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) do not apply to these acts. The parties will enter into and comply with other Agreements, including a conservation agreement and an Indigenous Management Agreement (IMA) under the Aboriginal Land Act 1991 (Qld). The ILUA also provides for a grant of licence between the Land Trust and Glen Shepard and Susan Shepard.
