An ILUA is a voluntary agreement between a native title group and others about the use of land and waters. These agreements allow people to negotiate flexible, pragmatic agreements to suit their particular circumstances. For more information, click here.

- Ammaroo ILUA; NNTT No. DI2014/003; 27/3/15

There have been many positives in the ILUA negotiation process with Alyawarr people and we seek to engage in good faith negtiations around a treaty.
