Detailed Information:
Commencement

This ILUA was registered with the Register of Indigenous Land Use Agreements on 5 December 2014.

The Extract does not provide a specific start or end date for the Agreement.

The Extract does, however, state that the Agreement will be effective from the date of determination of Native Title in favour of the Kullilli People, being 2 July 2014.

The Agreement will remain operative unless and until one of the following occur:

(a) the Lease term expires; or
(b) surrender, resumption, forfeiture or termination of the Lease; or
(c) the Agreement is removed from the Register of Indigenous Land Use Agreements.

Native Title Provisions

The Extract notes that there are no statements within the Agreement of the kind which are mentioned in 24EB(1) or 24EBA(1) or (4) of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth), and so the consequences set out under these sections are not triggered by this agreement.

This means that the ILUA does not:

- provide consent for the doing of any acts by non-native title parties;

- effect the right of the native title parties to negotiate with non-native title parties proposing to undertake a future act; nor

- validate any previous future acts.

Native Title in the ILUA Area

The Agreement Area covers all the lands and waters within the external boundary of the Kullilli People Native Title Determination (QC2009/001; QUD80/2009), as accepted for registration 19th October 2011.

On 2 July 2014 in the Federal Court decision in consent determination Smith on behalf of the Kullilli People v State of Queensland [2014] FCA 691 it was found that native title exists in the entire determination area.
