First Nations land rights deal in limbo after Federal Court decision

News / Event start date

A $34 million land rights deal between the Andrews government and a First Nations group is in limbo after the National Native Title Tribunal refused to register a key component of it. The Native Title Registrar this month informed the Taungurung Land and Waters Council it had not registered an Indigenous land use agreement struck as part of the 2018 deal, covering 20,000 square kilometres of central Victoria.
