Aboriginal land rights and native title

Accelerate the realisation of Aboriginal land rights and native title in partnership with Aboriginal people

Aboriginal land rights and native title interests are key to reconciliation and achieving economic, social, cultural and environmental outcomes in NSW. Crown land 2031 provides a commitment to uphold and progress land rights and native title interests in NSW. In addition to supporting these existing processes, Crown Lands will work with Aboriginal landowners and native title holders in the co-design and adoption of co-management strategies to unlock multiple benefits from land.

Outcomes:

  • Land returned to Aboriginal communities
  • Multiple co-management initiatives are established
  • Measurable contribution to national ‘Closing the Gap’ targets
