About Us

Tharawal Local Aboriginal Land Council [TLALC] was established on the 1/1/1983, under the Aboriginal Lands Rights Act NSW 1983 [ALRA]. Introduced in NSW to compensate Aboriginal people for the dispossession of their land. The ALRA enables Local Aboriginal Land Councils [LALCs] to claim NSW Crown Land that is owned and managed by the State Government.
