Type of resources
The LAND TENURE product is a vector representation of the public, private and Aboriginal lands of Australia. Data are sourced primarily from government gazette notices, cadastral maps and plans. This dataset is the 1993 land tenure dataset of Australia and marine areas at 1:4,700,000 scale.
This map shows public and private land tenure, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander land for the whole of Australia at a scale of 1:4.7 million. The land tenure boundaries depicted on this map generally define broadly classified areas greater than 50 square kilometres. Aboriginal land areas between 0.1 and 100 square kilometres are shown more comprehensively by symbols. The information on this map is complemented by statistical tables giving the total area of the land tenure categories for each state and territory. Also available as GIS data.
