Native Title Law & Lawyers

Under the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth), the Federal Court of Australia is responsible for the management and determination of all applications relating to native title in Australia.

If you believe you have the legal matter regarding native title law, then please complete your free legal enquiry form on the left, or click here.

Native title describes the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to land and waters according to their traditional laws and customs.

It was first recognised in the Australian legal system in 1992 by the High Court in the historic Mabo decision. Native title may include possession, occupation, use and enjoyment of traditional country.

It may include the right to access an area of land or the right to participate in decisions concerning how the land or waters are used by other people. Native title may also vary according to the rights of other people and may exist alongside other rights (called ‘co-existence’).

Native title cannot be bought or sold. It can be transferred by traditional law or custom, or surrendered to government, which can then pay compensation to the native title holders in the same way as it does when acquiring rights to other property.

The role of the Court

All applications for a determination of native title must be filed with the Court.

The Court has wide powers in native title cases. It can:

  • refer native title and compensation applications to the National Native Title Tribunal for mediation;
  • decide who are the ‘parties’ (the people involved in a case);
  • decide whether new people or organisations can become involved in proceedings as parties;
  • order adjournment of proceedings to allow time for the parties to negotiate;
  • make orders to ensure that overlapping native title applications which cover the same area are dealt with in one proceeding; or
  • make a determination that native title is to be held in trust.

The role of the National Native Title Tribunal

The main job of the Tribunal is to help people to resolve native title issues and to make agreements about the use of land. The Tribunal is not a court and does not decide whether or not native title exists.

To do its job the Tribunal follows the following procedure:

First, the Tribunal assesses each native title application. If the application passes certain legal tests the application is registered.

After the application has been registered there is a three month period for the Tribunal to notify people and organisations whose interests may be affected by a native title application (this is called the notification period).

The Federal Court then decides who the parties to the application are, and in most cases the Federal Court will then refer the application to the Tribunal for mediation. If the claim is not resolved by agreement through mediation, the matter goes back to the Federal Court.

How to make a Native Title Application

To make a native title application you need to fill out an application form.

Once the form has been completed you need to send it to the Court. You can do this by bringing it to the Court, or by posting or faxing it or by sending it by the internet. This is called 'filing'.

Mediation at the National Native Title Tribunal

The Native Title Act encourages negotiation and agreement. Once the parties are identified, the Court may refer the application to the National Native Title Tribunal for mediation.

At the Tribunal, a Tribunal member will act as a mediator to assist the parties to come to an agreement on whether native title exists and if so, who holds it.
The mediation can continue for at least three months.

After this time, any of the parties can ask the Court to stop the mediation and have the application heard by a Judge.

Mediation at the Federal Court

After an application has been filed with the Court a Judge may order that a mediation or case management conference be arranged. Usually all of the parties agree.

The mediator, who may be a Registrar of the Court, will help the parties to reach an agreement or to clarify the issues that are really in dispute.

If the mediation is unsuccessful the application will usually be heard by a Judge. At the hearing each of the parties will present their evidence. It is still possible, even after the hearing has started, for the Judge to direct the parties to try to reach an agreement on some of the issues in dispute through mediation.

Native title cases

Resolving native title applications is a complex and time-consuming process. It involves recognition of the operation of two systems of law: Australian common law and statute law on the one hand and the traditional law and custom of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples on the other.

To decide the question of whether native title exists and who it belongs to, the Judges will usually take evidence in the area subject to the claim and also visit important sites.

Sometimes the Court uses video link-up technology so that people living in remote areas can give evidence which is then televised to the courtroom.

Management of Native Title cases

The Court has implemented an innovative case management system called the Individual Docket System.

Under this system, Judges of the Court are actively involved in managing a case from beginning to end. Most cases are allocated to Judges soon after they are filed in the Court.

The native title list is managed as a national list. Once an application has been filed it will be allocated to a 'provisional docket judge' who monitors the application for the Court.

The Court has established a National Native Title Co-ordination Unit to provide advice to the Chief Justice and other Judges on management of native title cases.

Staff with experience in native title are also available in most Registries of the Court to assist applicants and parties in the practice and procedures of the Court and to assist in the organisation of hearings in remote localities.

Who can represent me?

You can attend hearings in person (without a lawyer) or be represented by a lawyer. You can also ask the Court to allow you to be represented by a person who is not a lawyer.

You can ask an association, society, organisation or other body to act as your agent in the proceedings. An agent can act for more than one party in the proceedings.

If you believe you have the legal matter regarding native title law and would like to get the best legal representation, then please complete your free legal enquiry form on the left, or click here.

What is a determination?

A determination of native title is a decision by the Court whether or not native title exists in relation to a particular area of land or waters.

If the Court decides that native title does exist it will also make decisions about:

  • who the people who hold the common or group rights comprising native title are; and
  • the nature and extent of the native title rights and interests in relation to the area; and
  • the nature and extent of any other interests in relation to the area; and
  • the relationship between the rights and interests between the people and their rights; and
  • whether the native title rights and interests allow the native title holders to possess, occupy, use and enjoy the land or waters to the exclusion of all others.

The Court can make a determination of native title when:

  1. an agreement reached through mediation is referred to the Court; or
  2. parties are unable to reach agreement and the Court hears the evidence and determines if native title exists.

If you believe you have the legal matter regarding native title law, then please complete your free legal enquiry form on the left, or click here.

What is the process for determination?

1. Filing: Once the application is filed the Court checks whether it is complete and correct. If it is, the application is sent to the Tribunal.

2. Registration: The Tribunal will apply the registration test. Passing the registration test gives the native title claim group certain procedural rights, including the right to negotiate (eg. over mining or mineral exploration).

Applications which fail the registration test usually proceed to mediation and/or trial, but the applicants do not have the right to negotiate. If the Tribunal does not accept the claim for registration, the applicant may ask the Court to review the Tribunal’s decision.

3. Notification: The Tribunal will advise the public and any individual or body (including State or Territory governments) whose interests may be affected by a native title determination to apply to the Court to become a party to mediation. The period in which a person can apply to the Court is three months.

4. The Court will receive the applications to become a party and will decide whether or not the person is a party.

5. Then there is usually a directions hearing which is attended by the applicants and other parties (and their legal representatives). At the directions hearing,
the Judge may finalise the party list and refer an application to the Tribunal for mediation.

6. If mediation in the Tribunal is successful, the agreement reached will be referred to the Court, which may make a determination of native title consistent with the agreement.

7. If the mediation is not successful, the Tribunal will provide a report to the Court. The Court may direct that further mediation occur or may hear the case.

History of native title law in Australia

Before 1788:
Aboriginal people and Torres Strait Islanders occupied Australia for at least 40,000 to 60,000 before the first British colony was established in Australia.

They spoke their own languages and had their own laws and customs. Those laws and customs were characterised by a strong spiritual connection to 'country'.

Traditional laws and customs cover things like:

  • caring for the natural environment and for places of significance
  • performing ceremonies and rituals
  • collecting food by hunting, fishing and gathering
  • providing education and passing on law and custom through stories, art, song and dance.

After 1788:

The British claimed sovereignty over part of Australia in 1788
and established a colony. In 1889, the British courts applied the doctrine of
terra nullius to Australia, finding that it a territory that
was ‘practically unoccupied’. In 1979, the High Court of Australia
did the same, saying that Australia was a territory which,
‘by European standards, had no civilised inhabitants or settled law’.
It was thought that, in these circumstances, the common law doctrine
of native title did not apply to Australia.

1992
In 1992, nearly 200 years after the arrival of the British, the High Court of Australia made an historic decision. In Mabo (No 2), the Court decided that the doctrine of terra nullius should not have been applied to Australia and that the common law of Australia would recognise native title.

Native Title Act 1993

The landmark Mabo (No 2) decision led to the  Australian Parliament passing the Native Title Act 1993 (Cwlth).

Land rights
National Native Title Tribunal (NNTT)
The National Native Title Tribunal of Australia works with people to develop an understanding of native title and reach enduring native title and related outcomes that recognise everyone's rights and interests in land and waters. It works in an impartial and fair way, taking into account the views and concerns of everyone involved in the native title process.

RECOGNITION OF NATIVE TITLE

In May 1982, Eddie Mabo and four other Meriam people of the Murray Islands in the Torres Strait began action in the High Court of Australia seeking confirmation of their traditional land rights. They claimed that Murray Island (Mer) and surrounding islands and reefs had been continuously inhabited and exclusively possessed by the Meriam people who lived in permanent communities with their own social and political organisation. They conceded that the British Crown in the form of the colony of Queensland became sovereign of the islands when they were annexed in 1879. Nevertheless they claimed continued enjoyment of their land rights and that these had not been validly extinguished by the sovereign. They sought recognition of these continuing rights from the Australian legal system. The case was heard over ten years through both the High Court and the Queensland Supreme Court. During this time, three of the plaintiffs including Eddie Mabo died.

On 3 June 1992, the High Court by a majority of six to one upheld the claim and ruled that the lands of this continent were not terra nullius or land belonging to no-one when European settlement occurred, and that the Meriam people were 'entitled as against the whole world to possession, occupation, use and enjoyment of (most of) the lands of the Murray Islands.'

The decision struck down the doctrine that Australia was terra nullius - a land belonging to no-one. The High Court judgment found that native title rights survived settlement, though subject to the sovereignty of the Crown. The judgment contained statements to the effect that it could not perpetuate a view of the common law which is unjust, does not respect all Australians as equal before the law, is out of step with international human rights norms, and is inconsistent with historical reality. The High Court recognised the fact that Aboriginal people had lived in Australia for thousands of years and enjoyed rights to their land according to their own laws and customs. They had been dispossessed of their lands piece by piece as the colony grew and that very dispossession underwrote the development of Australia into a nation.

The Native Title Act 1993 is part of the Commonwealth Government's response to that historic High Court decision.


The Native Title Act

The Prime Minister said in December 1993 during the passage of the Native Title Bill through Parliament:

'... as a nation, we take a major step towards a new and better relationship between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australians. We give the indigenous people of Australia, at last, the standing they are owed as the original occupants of this continent, the standing they are owed as seminal contributors to our national life and culture: as workers, soldiers, explorers, artists, sportsmen and women - as a defining element in the character of this nation - and the standing they are owed as victims of grave injustices, as people who have survived the loss of their land and the shattering of their culture.'

The Government was simultaneously presented with an opportunity and a challenge. The opportunity was to improve the relationship between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australians, and recognise their basic property rights. The challenge was how to respond to the land management issues because these property rights were recognised.

The Prime Minister said also during the passage of the legislation through Parliament that the Government made its twin objectives clear in its response to Mabo: to do justice to the High Court decision in protecting native title, and to ensure workable, certain land management.

The Act does five things:


It recognises and protects native title.


It provides for the validation of any past grants of land that may otherwise have been invalid because of the existence of native title.


It provides a regime to enable future dealings in native title lands and imposes conditions on those dealings.


It establishes a regime to ascertain where native title exists, who holds it and what it is, and to determine compensation for acts affecting it.


It creates a land acquisition fund to meet the needs of dispossessed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples who would not be able to claim native title.


In the Act, the Commonwealth has adopted the common law definition of native title. Native title is defined as the rights and interests that are possessed under the traditional laws and customs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and that are recognised by common law. Native title will be subject to the general laws of Australia, including State and Territory laws that are consistent with the Act, although native title rights to hunt, fish and carry on other activities may be exercised without the need for a licence or permit where others can carry out the activity only with a licence or permit.

The legislation represents a point of balance that recognises everyone's interests: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples who need their property rights and cultural rights recognised and respected; land developers - miners, pastoralists, tourist operators and others - who need access to land and certainty of title; and State and Territory Governments that need to manage land resources.

The Native Title Act came into operation on 1 January 1994. From that time no action may validly be taken in relation to land that is subject to native title except in accordance with the Act. Where land has been subject to certain types of tenure such as freehold, any native title to that land has been extinguished. In such cases, any action in relation to that land, such as the processing of mining applications, may proceed. However, if it is not clear from the tenure history that native title would have been extinguished on the land in question, for example, on vacant Crown land, then the proposed dealings in land would have to proceed with due regard for native title under the Act.


The National Native Title Tribunal

The Act provides for a systematic legal framework to deal with matters affecting native title. The new National Native Title Tribunal has the power to determine uncontested native title and compensation claims and will handle other issues including assisting negotiations and making decisions on proposed grants. The Act gives jurisdiction to the Federal Court to determine contested claims. The Tribunal is based in Perth and there are registries in all capital cities. The Tribunal is headed by Justice Robert French, whose appointment as President commenced on 2 May 1994 for three years. Among other things in a distinguished career, Justice French helped found, and later became Chairman of, the Aboriginal Legal Service in Western Australia.

The procedures of the Tribunal and those of the Federal Court are designed to be fair, just, economical and prompt. Those procedures must take account of the cultural and customary concerns of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and are not bound by legal forms or rules of evidence. This ensures that there will be sensitivity to traditional laws and customs. At the same time, there are safeguards against frivolous and vexatious claims, which will be rejected, and applications must contain sufficient information about the claims and must specify the area covered.

The Native Title Act provides an innovative and accessible approach to settle native title claims. For example, the Act confirms the potential to settle difficult cases by negotiation and further recognises that agreements might be reached on a regional basis.

The Act also sets out criteria to be satisfied in order to ensure that there is a nationally consistent approach to the recognition of native title so that State and Territory tribunals and processes can be recognised in order to fulfil the functions of the National Tribunal.


Role of the States and Territories

The Act is designed to allow a cooperative regime between the Commonwealth and the States and Territories by enabling their own bodies to be set up to determine native title, compensation claims and whether future dealings in native land can be done. States and Territories can choose, however, to use the Commonwealth regime. States and Territories can enact complementary validating legislation and develop other appropriate processes. At the time of writing there had been some clear developments in this area. Most States and Territories have enacted or introduced legislation intended to validate their past acts. The legislation of several States also makes provision for arrangements to determine whether future dealings in native title land can take place.

Where such State or Territory legislation exists and has been recognised, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples will have a choice as to whether they seek determinations of native title and compensation through the Commonwealth or State or Territory systems. Determinations on whether certain grants over native title land can proceed would be made under the State or Territory law.


Compensation

Native title holders are entitled to compensation for the effect of the validation of past acts on their rights. That compensation is payable by the Government that made the past act.

If a future act extinguishes or impairs native title, the native title holders will be entitled to compensation on essentially the same basis as someone who holds a freehold title (or leasehold in the Australian Capital Territory or Jervis Bay Territory), according to the relevant compensation laws.

The National Native Title Tribunal can deal with uncontested claims for compensation and will seek to mediate contested claims. If mediation is unsuccessful, the matter will be referred to the Federal Court.

The Commonwealth has offered to pay the majority of certain costs: three-quarters of the cost of past acts, and, until 1998, half of the continuing costs for State/Territory recognised bodies and alternative provisions to the Commonwealth regime.


Non-claimant Applications

Anybody with an interest in land - for example, holders of certain types of lease or an exploration permit - and all governments may wish to know whether native title exists in relation to that land, or whether a claim has been made for a determination about native title. If it cannot be readily established that native title has been extinguished, application can be made to the Tribunal for a determination. These applications are called non-claimant applications, to distinguish them from claims for native title from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples who believe they may have native title rights.

If no claim is made within two months of the non-claimant application being publicly advertised, the government in question can issue the lease. Even if native title is later found to have existed, the lease remains valid and any compensation would be payable by the government. Through the non-claimant process, the Act sets up a system where future acts can take place with certainty and the process takes place in a defined time frame.

Compulsory Acquisition Procedures

Normal government compulsory acquisition procedures, including a right to compensation, can apply to native title land. This means that governments may acquire land from native title holders, just as from other land holders, for public purposes such as infrastructure.

Surrender of Native Title

The legislation further recognises that native title holders may choose to surrender native title on terms acceptable to them, for example, to exchange it for a statutory title to allow them to engage in tourism or other commercial ventures.

The Land Acquisition Fund

Native title has been widely extinguished by past acts of government, such as the granting of freehold and leasehold title. Many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples now live away from their traditional lands and could find it impossible to demonstrate a connection with those lands. In recognition of the fact that many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples will not be able to gain native title because of historic dispossession, the Commonwealth Government also established a land acquisition fund under the Act. The fund allows Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to acquire and manage land in a way that provides economic, environmental, social or cultural benefits to them.

In the 1994-95 Budget the Commonwealth Government announced that a total of $1,463 million is to be allocated to the fund over ten years. These allocations will be invested so as to accumulate a self-sustaining fund for land acquisition and management.

The Act and Mining

There is no provision in the Act for native title holders to veto mining on their land. The Act does, however, provide them with the right to negotiate under certain circumstances. Those circumstances include the compulsory acquisition by governments of native title where it is not for a direct public purpose (for example, building a school or road) but for the purpose of granting the land to a third party such as a property developer; and the creation of a right to mine. In a lot of cases the outcome will most likely be decided between the developer and the relevant Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander community. Where agreement cannot be reached, the Act provides for an arbitrated determination by the Tribunal and, potentially, a ministerial decision, which overrides the Tribunal's determination. The Act sets out fair and finite time periods for this process.

The Act also allows certain future activities that will have minimal effect on native title to be excluded from the arrangements which give rights to negotiate to native title holders. This will be of special relevance and value to mineral exploration.

State and Territory mining laws that deal with other aspects of the mining regime are unaffected by the Native Title Act. The Act ensures that legislative regimes for economic activities offshore, especially commercial fisheries, and petroleum extraction can be validated.

Mining leases will not extinguish native title, which can be exercised after the grant and any renewals have expired. Future mining grants will not extinguish native title. This provision is in line with existing State practices with respect to mining grants over freehold land. Mining leases may be renewed on the same terms as before.

Pastoral Leases

The Act makes provision for Aboriginal people who own or acquire a pastoral lease to choose to claim native title rights where it is determined that the owners would otherwise meet native title criteria apart from the existence of the lease. The pastoral lease would not be given up. Existing covenants and conditions in the lease will continue to apply and prevail over native rights. Valid pastoral leases can be renewed even if native title has survived the lease and the use of the land. For pastoral leases generally, the Act ensures that the existing rights of pastoral lease holders are protected: should any invalidity be found because of native title, the lease will be validated.
