The Bundjalung of  Byron Bay Arakwal people lodged a Native Title Application over the land and adjoining waters extending from the Brunswick River to the north, past Julian Rocks to the east, Broken Head to the south and around the hinterland areas of Mullumbimby, Coorabell and Bangalow to the west.

A major part of our Native Title journey has been the opportunity  for our mob to live and work on country. The negotiations have enabled this to occur by providing affordable housing, employment and economic development opportunities.

Now quite a few of our mob work back on country but there is a long way to go!!

Key activities include:

  • Native Title Negotiations and Indigenous Land Use Agreements with NSW Government
  • Co-management Agreement with Arakwal National Park
  • Resource Agreement with Cape Byron Marine Park
  • Memorandum of Understanding with Byron Shire Council
  • Iron Bark Elders Housing Project
