Register of Indigenous Land Use Agreements

The Register of Indigenous Land Use Agreements contains information about Indigenous Land Use Agreements made between people who hold or may hold native title in the area and other people, organisations or governments.

The NNTT maintains a Schedule of Native Title Applications which contains current information of all native title determination applications that are provided to the Registrar by the Federal Court, including all claimant applications (whether or not they have passed the registr​ation test), non-claimant applications, compensation applications and revised determination applications.
