It is responsible for assisting Aboriginal peoples in the Top End of the Northern Territory to acquire and manage their traditional lands and seas.

In 1976 the Parliament of Australia passed the Aboriginal Land Rights (Northern Territory) Act 1976 (ALRA).  Since then approximately 50 percent of the land in the NT has become Aboriginal land in addition to 85 percent of the coastline.  A large proportion of the remaining land mass is subject to Native Title interests.

Land Councils are important bodies as they give Aboriginal peoples a voice on issues affecting their lands, seas and communities.
