Crown land tenures and native title

Certain Crown land licences and permits have terminated automatically, in accordance with a clause in those licences and permits, following the Bandjalang, Yaegl and Barkandji native title consent determinations made by the Federal Court of Australia. These determinations recognise that non-exclusive native title rights continue to exist over certain Crown land. The Department has written to all affected licence holders in these areas advising of this fact and how the situation is being addressed.
