Details of the Agreement

The ILUA extract is limited to details regarding the term of the ILUA and information regarding the right to negotiate provisions of the native title act.

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

On 11 September 2008, the Federal Court recognised Native Title rights within the ILUA area. The Federal Court held that Native Title exists in relation to the entire area of the Witjira National Park. The consent determination confers non-exclusive rights to the native title holders for the use and occupation of the land, consistent with other rights and interests.
