The Jabalbina Yalanji Aboriginal Corporation administers land on behalf of the Eastern Kuku Yalanji people or the Daintree. Their ownership was recognised in the Eastern Kuku Yalanji determination of December 2007.

This determination arose from a native title claim first made in 1994. Over 13 years, this claim has been negotiated to reach agreement. All parties now agree to recognise the Eastern Kuku Yalanji’s native title rights, including:

  • exclusive rights to 30,300 hectares of the Daintree Rainforest, and
  • non-exclusive rights over the other 96,600 hectares, including access rights for camping, hunting, fishing, gathering and the conduct of ceremonies.

This agreement was affirmed and approved by the Federal Court in December 2007.
