Land Claim Campaign 2010 – Background to Aboriginal Land Rights in NSW
CATEGORY: Land Claims

European occupation of Australia saw the beginning of the Land Rights struggle in Australia. It was at this time that colonisers believed that Australia was terra nullius (land belonging to no-one). The reality was that land has always been an important factor in the lives of Aboriginal people throughout Australia for over 60,000 years and continues to be today.


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.
