What We Do

In 2006, Murujuga Aboriginal Corporation was incorporated as the approved Corporate Body to administer the contractual obligations of the Burrup and Maitland Industrial Estates Agreement. In exchange for surrendering and permanently extinguishing their native title rights and interests to the Burrup and Maitland Industrial land, the three Aboriginal native title parties (being the Ngarluma-Yindjibarndi, the Yaburara Mardudhunera and the Wong-Goo-Tt-Oo), received a range of benefits from the WA Government which included freehold title and joint management of Murujuga National Park with the State Government through the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation, and Attractions – Parks and Wildlife Service.
