Managing the Aboriginal Lands Trust (ALT)


The Aboriginal Lands Trust (ALT) is a board of Aboriginal people, appointed by the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, for the purpose of managing land on behalf of Aboriginal Western Australians.  This land, currently representing 10 per cent of the total State land mass, comprises different types of tenure including reserves, leases and freehold properties.

The Department supports the ALT by managing the day to day requirements of the ALT estate, facilitating the transfer of land to Aboriginal control, and providing advice to the ALT, Aboriginal people, government departments and other stakeholders about the care, control and management of ALT land.

The ALT and the Department provide advice to the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs on ways to release the potential of land in order to achieve the social, economic and cultural aspirations of Aboriginal people.
