In a historic ceremony, the Boodjamulla National Park in Queensland has been returned to the Waanyi people, its traditional owners. This marks the first time that a prescribed body corporate of Indigenous representatives will lease national park land to the state. Upon the transfer of title deeds and its rededication as Boodjamulla National Park, it will become Queensland’s first Aboriginal land national park. Chairman of the Waanyi prescribed body corporate, Alec Doomadgee, emphasized the cultural and historical significance of the area and expressed optimism for the future, stating that the Waanyi people are looking forward to a brighter future and creating opportunities for their community in collaboration with the Queensland government. The handover includes an Indigenous land use agreement, which recognizes the native title rights of the Waanyi people and ensures ongoing public access and a co-operative management agreement between the Waanyi people and Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service. The handover is seen as a significant advancement in the Palaszczuk government’s Path to Treaty process.
