Background to native title in the ILUA area
The area covered by this ILUA falls within the Determination Area of native title made in the proceeding Jirrbal People #1 v State of Queensland (unreported, 8 October 2010, Dowsett J) by the Federal Court of Australia. This proceeding was one of three consent determinations that recognised the Jirrbal People's native title rights over approximately 92,003 hectares of land and waters, including sections of the Malaan National Park and Tully Falls National Park. The Wabubadda Aboriginal Corporation was established as the Prescribed Body Corporate to manage the Jirrbal People's native title rights on their behalf.
This ILUA is one of four Indigenous Land Use Agreements entered into by the Jirrbal People in relation to these consent determinations. These ILUAs are intended to provide for the exercise of the parties' rights and interests at ground level. Links to the entries for these agreements on the ATNS database have been provided below.
