Native Title

Native Title

The Water Management Act 2000 recognises the cultural and spiritual importance of water to Aboriginal people in NSW. Anyone who holds native title with respect to water, as determined under the Native Title Act 1993 (Cwlth), can take and use water for a range of needs. These include personal, domestic and non-commercial communal purposes such as manufacturing traditional artefacts, hunting, fishing, recreation, cultural and ceremonial purposes.
