Kakadu Fly Neighbourly Agreement

Leases require the director to set up an introductory program for tour operators and their managers. Tourism industry seminars are organized to inform about the park`s cultural and natural heritage and its management. Until now, the participation of tour guides in seminars was not mandatory. The lease with the Gunlom Aboriginal Land Trust contains specific provisions concerning the management and protection of holy sites, in particular the country of the hospital, the rehabilitation of old mines in the Gunlom Land Trust area and the control of Aboriginal cultural material. In 1997, the Mirarrs, who were recognized as traditional owners of Jabiru`s urban land, were entitled to the commune under the Native Title Act of 1993 on the communal territory and two adjacent areas of the park. The debt settlement agreement was concluded in 2009. Under the agreement, eligible lands would be granted as an Aboriginal country under the Land Rights Act. At the time of development of this plan, the subdivision was partially implemented by the allocation of the two areas adjacent to the city to the Kakadu Aboriginal Land Trust and leased to the Director. The right to urban areas should be clarified for the duration of this plan. Marine and river environments provide important habitat for a variety of sedentary and migratory species, many of which are listed in the EPBC Act and international conservation agreements. These include five species of sea turtles, dugongs and coastal birds.

The park also provides central habitat for an endangered and threatened species, two saw species and two threatened coastal dolphin species. (b) in the absence of an appropriate agreement between the regional council and the lessor, the amount of compensation to be paid under this clause is assessed by an independent person with at least 10 years of experience as a practitioner of justice at the Supreme Court of a state or territory in Australia, who is appointed by the Minister of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs and is a recognized person with a well-known reputation and high efficiency and has a recognized familiarity with the damage to the holy sites and the impact of such damage on Aboriginal sites related to these sites. Compensation under this clause does not depend on the fact that the lessor or the regional council suffers economic harm; Matches at any time the degree of distress, injury or trauma sustained. As noted in Section 1.5, joint management was introduced when the land lease was signed in The First Stage of the Park between the Kakadu Aboriginal Land Trust and the Director of National Parks in 1978 and the government committed to managing the entire park as if it were Aboriginal land. The leases between the director and the Cockatoos, Jabiluka and Gunlom Aboriginal Land Trusts involve commitments to the director: the joint management relationship in Kakadu has evolved since the lease of the first stage of the park was signed in 1978. The elders, who marched the country and were closely linked to the country, have now been passed on. The next generation of Bininj/Mungguy has grown up with the common park management relationship and has strengthened as decision makers. Some people were concerned about the pace of change (The Bininj/Mungguy and Balanda changes) and the impact of these changes on people`s current lives.

It is essential that Bininj/Mungguy continue to be involved in park management and it is equally important that park management continue to actively negotiate a balance that ensures control of the park`s values, achieves Bininj/Mungguy`s aspirations and takes into account the interests of other stakeholders where possible.
