Overview

The Bandjalang Aboriginal Corporation Prescribed Body Corporate RNTBC administers land on behalf of the Bandjalang People. Their native title rights and interests were first recognised in the Bandjalang People #2 native title determinations of 2013.

This matter recognises the Bandjalang people as having non-exclusive native title rights and interests over traditional lands on the north coast of New South Wales, at and around Evans Head. This decision was based on two amended applications for determination of native title known as the Bandjalang No 1 and Bandjalang No 2 claims. The Court noted the decision had taken some seventeen years, with the timeframe reflecting the complexity of the claim.
