NSW Land Rights Act becomes law

The NSW Land Rights Act becomes law. What becomes the Metropolitan Local Aboriginal Land council begins as the Redfern Local Aboriginal Land Council, whose primary objectives are determined by Section 51 of the New South Wales Aboriginal Land Rights Act 1983. The Act establishes 13 regional land councils, which will provide legal, economic and planning skills to acquire land in the interests of local Koori people. Isabel Flick is involved in early work. (V23 ‘Land is what we do’)
