What We Do

In exchange for surrendering and permanently extinguishing their native title rights and interests to the Burrup and Maitland Industrial land, the three Aboriginal native title parties (being the Ngarluma-Yindjibarndi, the Yaburara Mardudhunera and the Wong-Goo-Tt-Oo), received a range of benefits from the WA Government which included freehold title and joint management of Murujuga National Park with the State Government through the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation, and Attractions – Parks and Wildlife Service.
