    Summary Information:
    The Pastoral Lease Grant Agreement is a template Pastoral Agreement provided by the National Native Title Tribunal (NNTT).

    It is envisaged by the NNTT that these agreements will be used to assist Indigenous Australians and non-Indigenous Australians to negotiate Pastoral Agreements that can be tailored to their specific needs and circumstances.

    The Pastoral Lease Grant Agreement is designed to be made between government and Indigenous communities.

    The template agreement sets out the aims of the agreement, which include that it will suspend but not extinguish any traditional rights or interests, and will 'foster and develop a mutually beneficial relationship between all such persons having any such estates, interests or rights in relation to the use and enjoyment of the Land.'
    Detailed Information:
    The NNTT has issued template agreements covering six categories, being:
    1. Future Act Agreements
    2. Intra-Aboriginal Agreements
    3. Mediation Withdrawal Agreements
    4. Negotiating Framework Agreements
    5. Pastoral Agreements
    6. Reconciliation Agreements Principals.

    Please see the 'Template Agreement' link at the bottom of this page for further information.

    Please also see the National Native Title Tribunal's DISCLAIMER in relation to these agreements.
