Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander rights

We don't give legal advice about this area of law.

The information below may help you to resolve your matter or find out who else can help.

Native title describes the rights and interests of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people under their traditional laws and customs.

The rules about native title claims are complex and need specialist legal advice.

Visit the Queensland Government website for more information about issues relating to:

  • leasing Indigenous land
  • native title claims
  • Indigenous land agreements
  • applications to the reparations scheme for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples whose wages and savings were controlled under the 'Protections Act'. 

The Department of Natural Resources and Mines and the Queensland Government’s business and industry portal has information about native title, Indigenous lands and mining and resources in Queensland.

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Legal Service (Qld) can also give advice about legal matters relating to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across Queensland.
