Central Land Council
The Central Land Council (CLC) is a Commonwealth Government Statutory authority established under the Aboriginal Land Rights (Northern Territory) Act 1976 operating over the southern half of the Northern Territory – an area of 776,549 square kilometres. With more than 250 employees, and at least half Aboriginal employees, the CLC is the peak Aboriginal body for Central Australia and a Native Title Representative Body under the Native Title Act 1993.
The CLC provides traditional owners with advice, advocacy and practical assistance to support their aspirations, have their rights as landowners recognised and in the sustainable use and management of their land. We strive to represent the interests of the traditional landowners and other Aboriginal people resident in our region on a wide range of land-based and socio-political issues.
Our Council seeks to improve the lives and futures of all Aboriginal constituents through sustainable development and change. Together with Legal, Anthropological, Land Management and Mining services we operate successful Community Development (CD) and Ranger Programs with ranger groups based in ten Aboriginal communities across the CLC region.
