Indigenous Land Use Agreements (ILUA)

An ILUA is a negotiated agreement between native title groups and third parties regarding the management and use of

land and waters within a native title claim area. ILUA’s are achieved through a negotiation process provided for under

the Native Title Act 1993 as an alternative to lengthy litigation processes. Although not determined by a court, a

registered ILUA is still a legally binding agreement and must be adhered to. Yulluna Aboriginal Corporation assists in

the facilitation, negotiation and resolution of agreements as well as the certification for registration of an ILUA.
