Land Claim Campaign 2010 – 1: What is a Land Claim
CATEGORY: Land Claims

Claiming land within New South Wales is the right of every Local Aboriginal Land Council (LALC) and the NSW Aboriginal Land Council (NSWALC). Under the Aboriginal Land Rights Act (ALRA), our mob can claim land for the economic benefit of the state’s Aboriginal people. Any crown land within NSW that is not used or needed is claimable.


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.
