Gunyangara township leasing 21/11/2016

With great pleasure, Indigenous Affairs Minister Nigel Scullion spoke in the Senate today about the historic township lease agreement Gunyangara traditional owners have entered into, that will for the first time be held by a community-controlled Aboriginal Corporation.
This groundbreaking township lease is a tribute to the leadership, vision and strength of my friend, Mr Galarrwuy Yunupingu AM, and his family, in particular his brothers Djawa and Balupalu,
The Gunyangara township lease will deliver a range of benefits to the traditional owners and local community, including better land administration, local decision making about land-use issues and greater support for commercial development and home ownership. 21/11/2016
