The Lands are held in inalienable Aboriginal freehold title and are held on behalf of the Aboriginal owners by the Mutawintji Local Aboriginal Land Council. These were the first national park and associated lands in NSW to be handed back to Aboriginal owners and subsequently leased to the NSW Government under a formal joint management arrangement.

The Aboriginal owners, via the Board, are joint managers of the Lands with the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) which is part of the Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH).

Additional areas may be added to the Lands during the life of this plan, and will also be subject to the directions and management actions set out in this document.
