On 30 March 2009, Justice Mansfield made two consent determinations recognising the rights and interests of the Adnyamathanha People covering 41,085sq km of land in and around the Flinders Ranges. The determinations give the Adnyamathanha People non-exclusive rights including access for ceremonial or cultural activities, hunting and camping. The determinations also resolve a claim over the 918sq km Flinders Ranges National Park and another claim including 367sq km Angepena pastoral lease. An Indigenous land use agreement (ILUA) for the co-management of the Flinders Ranges National Park has also been finalised. The agreement reflects the Vulkathunha-Gammon Ranges National Park agreement, registered in 2006.
This is the fourth native title determination in South Australia, following De Rose Hill in 2005, Yankunytjatjara/Antakirinja in 2006 and Witjira National Park in 2008.
