About this organisation

he CLC represents Aboriginal people in Central Australia and supports them to manage their land, make the most of the opportunities it offers and promote their rights.  

It emerged from the Aboriginal struggle for justice and land rights. 

In 1976 the Commonwealth’s Aboriginal Land Rights Act (ALRA) gave Aboriginal people title to most of the Aboriginal reserve lands in the Northern Territory and the opportunity to claim other land not already owned, leased or being used.

The CLC divides its area covering almost 777,000 square kilometres into nine regions roughly based on 15 different language groups.

Today Aboriginal people make up a third of the NT’s population, with more than 24,000 of them living in Central Australia.

Aboriginal people collectively own half of the land in the Northern Territory – more than 417,000 square kilometres in the CLC region alone.
