WA native title agreement ‘groundbreaking’

A decade-long land dispute battle between West Australian Aborigines and the state government may be resolved with a Land Use Agreement and groundbreaking settle package.

The package may include health, education and job programs, and if successful, will be Australia’s first alternative native title settlement.

West Australian Attorney-General said the 30 000 Nyoongar people will receive due recognition as traditional owners of the land.
