The Land team undertakes the day to day land management requirements of the ALT estate, supports the ALT in facilitating the transfer of land to Aboriginal control, and provides advice to the ALT, Aboriginal people, government departments and other stakeholders about the care, control and management of ALT land. 

The ALT and DAA seek to release the potential of land in order to achieve the social, economic and cultural aspirations of Aboriginal people.
