Abstract: With a growing number of successful native title determinations under the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) (NTA), attention is increasingly turning to the administration of the actual rights and interests in land which flow from these determinations and the operations of Prescribed Bodies Corporate (PBCs), the title holding entities into which native title holders are obliged to incorporate to manage those rights and interests. This paper is concerned with the effective design and operation of PBCs, as well as other types of corporate bodies utilized by Indigenous groups in Queensland to hold the different forms of Aboriginal land title obtainable under State and Commonwealth legislation.
