The North Queensland Land Council (NQLC) is the recognised Native Title Representative Body for its region, which covers approximately 943,300 km2 of lands and waters, with approximately 411,164 km2 of this being land.

NQLC’s region is as diverse in its landscapes as it is in its culture, covering the marine environment of the Great Barrier Reef, to seven bioregions on land. These bioregions include the Central Queensland Coast, Brigalow Belt, Wet Tropics of the coastal and upland areas, Einasleigh Uplands and Desert Uplands, Mitchell Grass Downs and the Savannah Gulf Plains.

NQLC has been representing its constituents since its incorporation in March 1994, achieving 54 native title consent determinations; and has negotiated numerous land use agreements to ensure maximum benefit to the traditional owners of their region.

It is NQLC’s mission to ensure that the native title rights and interests of every traditional owner within their region is legally recognised, and for Aboriginal people to benefit culturally, socially and economically from the secure possession of their traditional land and waters.

Our Vision

Our vision is for a region in which the native title rights and interests of every native title holder have been legally recognised, and which Aboriginal people benefit economically, socially and culturally from the secure possession of their traditional land and waters.

Our vision is to ensure the continuance of an organisation with good governance as a fundamental, and which gives traditional owners a representative board through the Ward Election process.
