Media Permits & Information
Under the Aboriginal Land Act 1980, it is the Northern Land Council’s responsibility to oversee media access to Aboriginal land on behalf of traditional owners across the NLC’s area.
While Aboriginal land is privately owned, Aboriginal people recognise that it is important for media to have access to their communities so long as cultural sensitivities (e.g. sacred sites, periods of mourning) are respected and appropriate behaviour is observed (see separate Protocols for Media Behaviour).
Below are the application forms for our various media permits, available in both electronic and PDF formats.
In addition to the above information on access and behaviour, it is strongly advised you read the Frequently Asked Questions before completing your application form.
