Native Title Provisions:

Extinguishment:

The Parties agree that the surrender of the Birriah People's native title rights and interests is intended to extinguish any native title in relation to the ILUA Area and that the extinguishment took effect before the grant of any freehold title over the ILUA area to Catherine Alice Betteridge and Wayne Robert Easton.

Right to negotiate:

The Parties agree that Subdivision P, Part 2, Division 3 of the NTA is not intended to apply to the Surrender, which means that the right to negotiate provisions under the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) do not apply.

Native Title in the ILUA Area:

The ILUA is within the native title area recognised by the Federal Court on 23 March 2016 in the consent determination Miller on behalf of the Birriah People v State of Queensland [2016] FCA 271 (see Federal Court Number: QUD6244/1998; NNTT Number: QCD2016/001).
