Overview

In 2008, Justice Lander made a consent determination recognising the native title rights of the Wangkangurru/Yarluyandi claim groups. The determination recognised non-exclusive native title rights and interests in the 7770sq km of the Witjira National Park and a commercial lease at Mt Dare. This was the first determination over a South Australian national park and resolves four claims over the Witjira National Park: the Irrwanyere Mt Dare claim (2005), and park overlap areas of two Eringa claims (1996 and 1999) and a Wangkangurru/Yarluyandi claim (1997).

Negotiations in the lead up to the consent determination also included a partnership for co-management of the Witjira National Park and an Indigenous land use agreement.
