    About Us

Native Title Services Victoria facilitates sustainable native title and land justice outcomes.

In the wake of the 2002 High Court decision in Yorta Yorta v Victoria there was a common view that native title as a doctrine would have little application in Southern Australia. Since its creation in 2003, Native Title Services Victoria, the legal service that represents Victorian native title claimants, has proved this view wrong. Victoria now has four successful determinations of native title covering much of the crown land of the State and a settlement under the Traditional Owner Settlement Act.
