National maps



The Tribunal's national maps provide a national perspective of native title matters across a range of themes.
NTDA Schedule

This A4 map depicts the boundaries of claimant applications as filed with the Federal Court.

Where the boundary of an application has been amended in the Federal Court but not yet considered for registration, this map shows the amended boundary.

The applications shown on the map include:
  • registered applications (that have complied with the registration test);
  • amended applications (where the registration test is being applied);
  • unregistered applications (that have not been accepted for registration).

Registered Claims

This A4 map depicts the boundaries of claimant applications that have been entered onto the Register of Native Title Claims (RNTC).

Claimants with registered claims have the right to negotiate about some proposed developments over land and waters covered by their claim.

Within these determinations, native title will have been found to exist, been extinguished, or a combination of both.

Draft, proposed and/or conditional determinations and determinations 'subject to appeal' are also noted.
