There are four Land Councils in the Northern Territory established under the Aboriginal Land Rights (Northern Territory) Act 1976:
New South Wales
In 1983 the NSW Government passed the Aboriginal Land Rights Act 1983.
The Aboriginal Land Rights Act 1983 was established to compensate Aboriginal people in New South Wales for their loss of connection to land. The Act established a 3-tiered network of Aboriginal Land Councils in New South Wales consisting of the NSW Aboriginal Land Council, 13 Regional Aboriginal Land Councils and 120 Local Aboriginal Land Councils.
The Minister for Aboriginal Affairs administers the Aboriginal Land Rights Act 1983 and the Aboriginal Land Rights Regulation 2002 through the Department of Aboriginal Affairs
The Aboriginal Land Rights Act 1983 created Aboriginal Land Councils in NSW and contains all the rules that govern how Aboriginal Land Councils operate. Each Land Council is set up as a separate and independent organisation, with its own powers and responsibilities.
The NSW Aboriginal Land Council aims to protect the interests and further the aspirations of its members and the broader Aboriginal community.
