Aboriginal Land Commissioner's Reports

The Aboriginal Land Commissioner is a statutory officer of the Commonwealth appointed to perform functions outlined in section 50 of the Aboriginal Land Rights (Northern Territory) Act 1976.  Those functions include undertaking inquiries into traditional land claims in the Northern Territory of Australia and providing related reports, containing findings and recommendations, to the Commonwealth Minister responsible for the administration of the Act and the Administrator of the Northern Territory.

The Aboriginal Land Commissioner may also be requested by the responsible Commonwealth Minister to provide advice on any other matter relevant to the operation of the Act.
