Kyburra Munda Yalga Aboriginal Corporation RNTBC

On 26 July 2011, the Federal Court of Australia made a consent determination recognising the Juru People’s non-exclusive rights over the Cape Upstart National Park. The Juru People are the recognised native title holders of around 8,500 hectares in Cape Upstart National Park, consisting of the northern and southern mainland parcels and majority of Camp Island.

The original claim contained members of the Birri Gubba people; however, following anthropological research in 2003, the name of the claimants was changed to the Juru (Cape Upstart) People.

During negotiations, the Juru People reached an Indigenous Land Use Agreement (ILUA) with the Queensland Government regarding management of the National Park, and an ILUA with Ergon Energy to establish how the parties’ rights and interests will be carried out.

The Juru People’s native title application was lodged in 1997 and is the 59th native title determination in Queensland.
