Summary Information:

On 9 October 2012 the Federal Court of Australia recognised the Jangga People's Native Title rights and interests over approximately 11,350 square kilometres of land in Central Queensland.

Andrew Cripps, Natural Resources and Mines Minister, stated that the decision reaffirmed the Jangga People's affinity with their traditional lands around Mount Coolon, Urella and Lake Dalrymple:

'This Native Title Consent Determination recognises the Jangga People's exclusive native title rights and non-exclusive rights to access, hunt, fish and gather within the determination area in accordance with their traditional laws and customs.'

'The determination area includes 218 parcels of land comprising reserves, national park, unallocated State land, pastoral holdings and lease land.

'I congratulate the Jangga People for achieving this consent determination which can be a stepping stone to a range of economic, cultural and social benefits.'

Mr Cripps said today's determination was the result of a claim first lodged by the Jangga People in 1998 and brings the number of native title determinations in Queensland to 75 and the number of determinations by consent to 69.

'The consent determination was achieved through the hard work of the Jangga People, the Queensland Government and several other parties who have all shown a commitment to the native title claim process,' he said.

'Additionally several Indigenous Land Use agreements (ILUA) have been negotiated with the Jangga People.

'These ILUAs establish how native title rights and interests will be exercised in the protected areas subject to the determination.

'They provide a framework for managing cultural heritage issues, future activities, and use and access arrangements.

'The Queensland Government will continue to work with Native Title claimant groups to achieve successful determination outcomes.'
