Legends of Land Rights: Frank Walker

31 July, 2014

In the NSW Aboriginal Land Council’s ongoing series ‘Legends of Land Rights’ we profile former NSW parliamentarian Frank Walker. As Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Frank Walker was responsible for NSW being the first state, following the Northern Territory, to enact Aboriginal land rights legislation.


We pay our respects to the Traditional Owners of the lands where we work as well as across the lands we travel through. We also acknowledge our Elders past, present and emerging.
