30 May 2016: Traditional Owners Lodge Native Title Claim over the Grampians

1464595206086

Traditional Owners have lodged a native title claim over Gariwerd National Park (the Grampians). Community meetings were held late last year for all Traditional Owners who claim rights and interests in the park. At the meetings, the groups decided to come together and form a joint claim as ‘The Gariwerd Native Title Group’. The Traditional Owners who claim rights and interests in the park are represented by the Barengi Gadjin Land Council, Gunditj Mirring Traditional Owner Aboriginal Corporation and Eastern Maar Aboriginal Corporation.
