The long journey to Native Title and Self Determination.
Port Curtis Coral Coast Trust (PCCC)
PCCC represents the traditional owners of the First Nations Bailai, Gurang, Gooreng Gooreng, Taribelang People Native Title Claim Group and provides administrative and operational support for the Registered Native Title Prescribed Body Corporate (RNTPBC or PBC). The PBC is responsible for and manages all Native Title, Cultural Heritage, TUMRA, Land and Sea Claim interests across the Bundaberg, Gladstone and into the North Burnett regions. The PCCC office also delivers dedicated social programs and manages the assets and interests for PCCC people.
Port Curtis Coral Coast region includes traditional country spanning across the Bundaberg, Gladstone and North Burnett regions and covers approximately 19,583 square kilometres land and 26,636 square kilometres of sea country.
The Native Title Journey has been a long road for all mobs around the country and there have been many challenges to overcome. PCCC have endured these many challenges and worked hard to be in a position to negotiate strong Indigenous Land Use Agreements (ILUA) and for the community to start enjoying the benefits of this work. Acknowledgment must be given to PCCC elders standing today and those many who have not been able to see the fruits of their work for all PCCC people.
