The Mandingalbay Yidinji Aboriginal Corporation administers land owned by the Mandingalbay Yidinji people. Their ownership was recognised in the Mandingalbay Yidinji determination in 2006.

This determination arose from a claim lodged in 1999. This claim was negotiated between all 139 parties. All parties agreed to recognise Mandingalbay Yidinji people’s native title rights to exclusive and non-exclusive possession in different areas of the claim.

In addition to this determination, the Mandingalbay Yidinji Aboriginal Corporation also administers Indigenous Land Use Agreements over the claim area. These agreements were made with Telstra, Ergon Energy, the state of Queensland and the Cairns City Council and they related to access.
