Summary Information:
The Port Vincent Marina Indigenous Land Use Agreement enables a marina to be developed at the town of Port Vincent on South Australia's Yorke Peninsula.

Under the Agreement the local Indigenous Narungga People 'acknowledge' that the necessary activities required for the marina development will extinguish native title and they 'surrender any native title rights and interests they may hold in the land.' Without this Agreement, the development would have been invalid and the right to negotiate provisions of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) (NTA) would apply. Under the NTA any activity, such as the development, that may affect native title rights is defined as a 'future act' and must otherwise comply with the future act provisions of the NTA in order to be valid.
