Compensation a historic win for Timber Creek
The Ngaliwurru and Nungali people in the Northern Territory have forged a new path for Traditional Owners across the country according to the National Native Title Council (NNTC).
Traditional owners have won a compensation claim after their seven year legal battle to claim native title rights across parts of the town back in 2006. This claim quantifies the loss of native title rights not only for the Ngaliwurru and Nungali people but for all future Native Title compensation claims.
