Summary Information:

This ILUA provides for the grant of a Trustee Lease to the Queensland government, which enables the construction of a Health Centre on the agreement area.
Detailed Information:
The structure of the Yarrabah Community - as it exists today - was established by the Queensland government through a Deed of Grant in Trust (DOGIT) on 27 October 1986 (State Library of Queensland). Under this arrangement, Yarrabah Council owns the land on trust for the community it serves.

This ILUA involved the grant of a Trustee Lease between Yarrabah Aboriginal Council and the State, and the construction of the Health Centre.

The services provided by the Primary Health Care Centre include accident and emergency, GP consulting rooms, pharmacy, self-care dialysis and community health services including mental health, oral health, pathology, medical imaging, immunisation, maternity and palliative care (Qld Minister for Health Media Statement).
