Details of the agreement

The National Native Title Tribunal have released very limited information regarding this ILUA, except that it relates to 'Terms of Access'. The agreement includes no statements relating to Future Acts.


The Antakirinja Matuntjara Yankunytjatjara People in Lennon on behalf of the Antakirinja Matu-Yankunytjatjara Native Title Claim Group v The State of South Australia [2011] FCA 474 were granted native title in a consent determination on 11 May 2011. They had lodged their application for native title 16 years ago in 1995, slightly ammending it to change the boundaries of the area claimed in 2009.

This particular ILUA is part of a series of ILUAs anticipated by the Consent Determination. Scehdule 7(2) envisaged that individual ILUAs would be entered into by 'various pastoralists'.

Falling under this category of pastoral ILUAs envisaged by the Consent Determination as well as being between the same parties as this ILUA are the:
- Muckanippie Pastoral Indigenous ILUA; and
- Malbooma Part (PE 2246)Pastoral ILUA.
