A new journey together – Traditional Owners’ vision for the future of Nhulunbuy and the Gove Peninsula

The Gove Peninsula Futures Reference Group includes Rirratjingu Aboriginal Corporation, Gumatj Corporation, the Northern Land Council, the Northern Territory Government, the Australian Government and Rio Tinto. These parties are committed to working together to achieve a positive future for Nhulunbuy and the Gove Peninsula after the Gove bauxite mine closes.

In May 2019, the Reference Group made a statement on the future of the Gove Peninsula, where all parties committed to working together to achieve a positive future for Nhulunbuy and the Gove Peninsula after the Gove bauxite mine closes.

When Rio Tinto leases end, land will be returned to Traditional Owners.

The Traditional Owner Vision has been prepared on behalf of Rirratjiŋu and Gumatj Traditional Owners through consultations in 2020. The vision is a foundational document which will guide planning and action by the Reference Group.

Traditional Owners have shared the vision to begin discussions with Gove Peninsula residents, businesses and organisations about the future. Traditional Owners acknowledge the important role that others will play on this new journey together.

The Gove Peninsula Futures Reference Group invites you to read and understand this Vision, to consider what it means for you and your work, and to reflect on how we could work together to create a strong future.
