Bulganunna Aboriginal Corporation
The Bulgunna Aboriginal Corporation administers land on trust for the Jangga people. In a consent determination on 9 October 2012, the Federal Court recognised the exclusive and non-exclusive native title rights of the Jangga People in an area spanning approximately 20,350 square kilometres in Central Queensland.
The claim was first filed in 1998 over an area west of Mackay, between the Leichhardt Range and the Great Dividing Range. Several Indigenous Land Use Agreements were negotiated between the parties and will be administered by the Bulgunna Aboriginal Corporation. At the special Federal Court sitting at Glenden, Justice Rares congratulated the parties on achieving a ‘mutually satisfactory result.’
