Joy as Jabiru is returned to Mirarr traditional owners, ending 20-plus year native title fight

News / Event start date

One of Australia's longest running native title fights has ended with the formal return of land rights to traditional owners in the Kakadu Northern Territory township of Jabiru.

The town is home to a vibrant traditional art centre, the home of the notorious Cahills Crossing where fishermen battle crocs for a catch, and on the doorstep of World-Heritage listed Kakadu National Park.
