Native Title: 1 – Comparison of Land Rights and Native Title in NSW

In NSW there are two key mechanisms by which Aboriginal peoples can have their rights recognised in land – Land Rights and Native Title. While these systems are both about recognising and providing for Aboriginal peoples’rights, the two systems operate under two different laws and differ in the rights they can provide. Native title and land rights can sometimes exist in the same land. It is important that LALCs and Native title Claimants work together to obtain the best of both schemes.
