The Aboriginal Land Council’s calls for the West Coast Aboriginal landscape to be returned should be heard by both the Federal and State Governments.

The return of the late, great Geoff King's takayna property to Aboriginal ownership is both an historic moment and an important step towards ensuring Geoff's legacy of care for that extraordinary, wild coastline lives on.
Geoff King gave his life to protecting the culturally rich landscape his family long owned from damage and vandals, often putting himself at personal risk to do so.
Cassy O'Connor MP | Greens Aboriginal Affairs spokesperson
The Premier's no doubt sincere commitment to 'reset the relationship' with Aboriginal Tasmanians by 30 June this year - according to the Liberals' March 2015 update - is off to an uninspiring and noncommittal start.
In Estimates today, the Premier refused to commit to the return of lands in this term of government and refused to reverse the Liberals' ill-thought policy to open up tracks in the culturally priceless Tarkine region.
