Overview

The Yulluna Aboriginal Corporation administers land on behalf of the Yulluna people. Their native title rights and interests were recognised in the Yulluna People determination of 28 March 2014.

The Court determined that the Yulluna People hold non-exclusive native title rights in relation to the determination area, set out in Part 1 of Schedule 1A of the decision. It determined that native title does not exist in relation to another part of the determination area, described in Part 2 of Schedule 1A of the decision. These orders were consistent with the terms agreed by the consenting parties.

On 1 June 2010, the Yulluna People applied for a determination of native title over an area of about 10,027 km2 in northwest Queensland, located south of Mt Isa and Cloncurry and to the west of Dajarra. The respondents to the application were the State of Queensland, the Boulia, Cloncurry and McKinlay Shire Councils, various mining and exploration companies and 12 pastoralists.

On 21 February 2014, the parties filed an agreement pursuant to s 87 of the NTA seeking a consent determination.
