Cape York Land Council

The Cape York Land Council consults with the Aboriginal peoples of Cape York and, according to their directions, effectively represent them to regain rights to land and sea. They champion the preservation and promotion of the traditions and cultures of Aboriginal people as a key driver for their mission.

As part of our work on the Peninsula Developmental Road we successfully negotiated the Indigenous Land Use Agreement before starting the work, demonstrating our ongoing commitment to actively engage key stakeholders. We also partnered with the Cape York Land Council to award 4 high school scholarships and 2 tertiary scholarships for 2017, 2018 and 2019.
