Our History

On the 9th September 2011 the Registrar of the Aboriginal Land Rights Act caused a notice to be published in the NSW Government Gazette giving notice of the application to constitute Biraban Local Aboriginal Land Council (LALC). After consideration the Minister gazetted boundaries of Biraban LALC, which encompasses an area within the western side of Lake Macquarie Council. On the 29th of August 2012 the Registrar called the first Annual General Meeting to elect the Board of Biraban LALC.

Since its inception Biraban LALC has implemented a range of programs and services to address the needs of the community and work towards achieving its Vision.

Biraban LALC services include Environmental Conservation & Land Management, Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Due Diligence Assessments, Social Housing, Economic Development, Community Programs and Aboriginal Land Rights Advocacy.
