Information about permits needed to travel on Aboriginal Land
The purpose of this document is to provide guidelines for and ask questions of researchers and their teams who wish to enter and remain on Aboriginal Land, or sea adjoining Aboriginal Land, to conduct research or surveys.
Aboriginal land is privately owned. It is not Crown land, nor public land.
Under the Aboriginal Land Act 1980, it is the Northern Land Council’s responsibility to oversee media access to Aboriginal land on behalf of traditional owners across the NLC’s area.
