ABORIGINAL LAND CLAIMS

HOW TO MAKE A LAND CLAIM

The New South Wales Aboriginal Land Council (NSWALC), with assistance of the Office of the Registrar, has developed a helpful guide to the land claim process: Land Claims Manual for Local Aboriginal Land Councils [PDF].

Land claims must be lodged in writing with the Registrar, using the form Land Claim for Land Pursuant to Aboriginal Land Rights Act 1983 (NSW) [PDF]. The claim should identify the land claimed as clearly as possible. All land claims should be signed by the Land Council's Chairperson.

The claim form can be posted, emailed, faxed or delivered in person to
