Northern Land Council

The Northern Land Council is an independent statutory authority. It is responsible for assisting Aboriginal peoples in the Top End of the Northern Territory to acquire and manage their traditional lands and seas.

In 1976 the Parliament of Australia passed the Aboriginal Land Rights (Northern Territory) Act 1976 (ALRA).  Since then approximately 50 percent of the land in the NT has become Aboriginal land in addition to 85 percent of the coastline.  A large proportion of the remaining land mass is subject to Native Title interests.

Approximately 30,000 Aboriginal people live within the NLC region.  While many live in major towns there are almost 200 communities ranging in size from small family outstations to settlements of up to 3,000 people.
