Butchulla Native Title Aboriginal Corporation

Butchulla Native Title Aboriginal Corporation was established in October 2019 to hold and manage the native title rights and interests of the Butchulla People following their successful native title determination in the Butchulla People Land & Sea Claim #2.

Our vision is to create greater opportunities for Indigenous people to realise their full potential and contribute to culturally vibrant and sustainable communities throughout the Wide Bay region.

We never lose sight of our traditional culture.

The recognition of traditional Aboriginal country and culture are the foundations on which our services are built and delivered.
