The Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation was established as the Prescribed Body Corporate to manage the native title rights on behalf of the Quandamooka native title holders. The determination arose from a native application that was lodged in 1995 and 1999 (Quandamooka people #2) by the Quandmooka people for recognition of native title rights interest over land and waters in the area of Stradbroke Islands.

At a Federal Court hearing on North Stradbroke, the court recognised the Quandamooka People’s native title rights and interest to 54,408 hectares of land and waters on and surrounding North Stradbroke Island. The determination included areas of national parks, reserves, unallocated State land and other leases. The Quandamooka people hold exclusive native and non-exclusive native title rights that include: the right to live and be present on the area, conduct ceremonies, to maintain places of importance and areas of significance to, and to take, use, share and exchange traditional natural resources and seawater for any non-commercial purpose.
