Budj Bim Indigenous Protected Area.
In 2018, GMTOAC combined its properties under the Budj Bim Indigenous Protected Area Plan of Management. The Peters, Kurtonitj, Lake Condah Mission, Lake Condah, Allambie and Lake Gorrie properties cover 2,700 hectares of cultural significant land along the Budj Bim Cultural Landscape.
The Budj Bim Rangers conduct their Working on Country program across the GMTOAC properties.
The Commonwealth Government’s Indigenous Protected Areas program supports Indigenous landowners to develop and implement plans of management for the conservation of their lands as part of Australia's National Reserve System.
There are 75 declared Indigenous Protected Areas covering just over 67 million hectares across Australia. Indigenous Protected Areas now cover an area which equates to around 45% of our National Reserve System.
