North West Indigenous Pastoral Project
The North West Indigenous Pastoral Project (NWIPP) in South Australia’s Far North involves eight important Indigenous owned properties:
- Andamooka, Purple Downs and Roxby Downs Stations (Kokatha Pastoral Pty Ltd)
- Emeroo Station (Bungala Aboriginal Corporation)
- Mount Clarence, Mount Willoughby and Mabel Creek Stations (AMY Nominees Pty Ltd)
- parts of the APY (Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara).
The State Government, through the Department of Primary Industries and Regions, has invested almost $2.9 million to NWIPP since its inception in 2015, with a further $2.25 million committed over 2019-2021.
The project is run in partnership with the Indigenous Land Corporation (ILC). The ILC has also provided more than $800,000 in complementary grant funding and will commit a further $600,000 to participant groups to undertake property management planning and for plant, equipment and infrastructure development to enable land to be brought back into production.
