The Budina Aboriginal Corporation RNTBC holds land in trust for the Budina people in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. The native title rights and interests of the Budina people were recognised in a consent determination in October 2017.
The traditional country of the Budina people is approximately 150km east of Coral Bay, to the south-east of Exmouth. The claim area covers approximately 4096 square kilometres of land. The claim area includes the majority of Towera and Lyndon stations, parts of Emu Creek and Uaroo stations, and very small portions of Middalya, Mangaroon and Maroonah stations. It is bisected northwest to southeast by the Yannarie River, and includes a portion of the Lyndon River in the south.
