Whose country am I on?

Many people and organisations want to know whose country they are on to recognise and show their respect for traditional owners.


To check whose country you are on in native title terms, you can check an interactive map tool Native Title Vision maintained by the Native Title Tribunal. You search for your address or town and then click on the area around that and it shows the determined or claim area.

Some areas in Australia are not yet determined for native title purposes or are the subject of overlapping native title claims. In this case you can consult with local Aboriginal people to consider their perspectives on who should be recognised as local traditional owners.

Welcomes to Country and Acknowledgement of Country

When you know whose country you are on you may want to have a public recognition of those people’s connection to their country at a public event or in a publication.
