ENTRY PERMITS TO THE SPINIFEX LANDS
The Native Title Determination process recognises the native title rights of exclusive possession, occupation, use and enjoyment of the lands within the Spinifex determination area. This is the highest form of native title recognised at law. Exclusive possession, occupation, use and enjoyment native title land means that in most cases entry onto Spinifex determination area will require the consent of the Spinifex native title holders.
Land access information can be found on the Central Desert Native Title site here!
A portion of the Spinifex determination is also subject to Use and Benefit Aboriginal Reserve 17614. Access to this Aboriginal Reserve is gained through an entry permit under the Aboriginal Affairs Planning Authority Act. An entry permit under the Aboriginal Affairs Planning Authority Act will not be granted without the consent of the Spinifex native title holders.
For more information, please see the page detailing the Aboriginal Reserves within the Central Desert Region for the types of entry permits required on Aboriginal Reserves.
