Wadjanbarra Tableland Yidinji Aboriginal Corporation RNTBC
The Wadjanbarra Tableland Yidinji Aboriginal Corporation RNTBC administers land on behalf of the Tableland Yidinji People. Their native title rights and interests were first recognised in the Tableland Yidinji and Tableland Yidinji #3 native title determinations on 14 December 2012 and 23 March 2013 respectively.
The claim area set out in Tableland Yidinji #3 adjoins an area of native land and waters determined in late 2012. The current claim was filed in 2004. This claim was heard separately as it was discovered that the claim group could show exclusive possession over parts of the claim area. The respondent parties include Ergon Energy Corporation Ltd, the state of Queensland, the Cairns Regional Council and the Tablelands Regional Council, among others.
The determination recognises exclusive possession native title rights and interests in relation to 28ha of land. The Tableland Yidinji people have non-exclusive native title rights and interests in relation to approximately 6464ha of land and waters.
The consent determinations will operate along with a number of ILUAs that the Tableland Yidinji People have negotiated with local councils and service providers. The ILUAs provide for the management and the ongoing protection of land within the determination area.
