Western Australia's Government has confirmed the new name for the iconic King Leopold Ranges, with the name of the Belgian "tyrant" set to be permanently removed from the Kimberley landscape. It will now be known as the Wunaamin-Miliwundi Range.

The Bunuba people in the Kimberley have been recognised as the traditional owners and granted native title to more than 6,500 kilometres of land. The native title claim which has been in the Federal Court for 13 years was yesterday concluded with celebrations in Geieke Gorge, near Fitzroy Crossing.

A 13-year Federal Court battle ended today in the Kimberley as Justice Gilmour formally recognised the native title rights and interests of the Bunuba people over 6528sqkm of land and waters in the Fitzroy Valley in a special “on country” court session.

Bunuba People gain recognition of their native title rights over a significant area of land stretching from Fitzroy Crossing to the South East, the Leopold Range to the North East, the Oscar Range to the South West and the Napier Range to the North West.

The Federal Court has granted the Bunuba community native title rights over 6,500 square kilometres of land and water in the Fitzroy Valley.
