Overview

The Budjiti Aboriginal Corporation RNTBC holds land in trust for the Budjiti people of south west Queensland. Their rights and interests over their land were acknowledged in June 2015 in the McKellar on behalf of the Budjiti People judgement. This consent determination came into effect in January 2016, following the signing of the Currawinya & Lake Bindegolly National Parks Agreement Indigenous Land Use Agreement (ILUA) with the Queensland Government. This was immediately preceded by the signing of a number of ILUAs with local pastoral interests following the consent determination.

Some Budjiti people also refer to themselves as the Paroo River people, and the Paroo river, which flows through the determination area, is of immense spiritual and cultural significance to the Budjiti people.
