The Muluridji Tribal Aboriginal Corporation administers land on behalf of the Muluridji People. The Muluridji People’s ownership was recognised in the Muluridji People v State of Queensland determination.
At a Federal Court hearing in Mareeba, Justice Logan made two consent determinations recognising the Muluridji People’s native title rights and interests to 12,030 hectares of land and waters in the locality of, and to the north-west of Mareeba. The area includes Hann Tableland National Park, Mareeba Tropical Savannah, Wetland Reserve and unallocated state land, pastoral leases and other reserve lands. The Muluridji People hold exclusive native title rights in relation to 745 hectares of land and 11,285 hectares of non-exclusive rights. The nature and extent of the native title rights and interests existing in the balance of the determination area are as follows:
- the right to access and be present on the area, to hunt, fish and gather on the land and waters of the area for personal, domestic, and non-commercial communal purposes;
- and to maintain places of importance and areas of significance to the native title holders under their traditional laws and customs.
