Larrakia Nation Aboriginal Corporation (LNAC) is the peak advocacy and support agency for the Larrakia people, the Traditional Land Owners of the Greater Darwin area.
Initially established in 1998 to represent the native title interests of the Larrakia people, LNAC has since evolved into a vital service delivery organisation focused on addressing the social, cultural and economic aspirations of the Larrakia people by initiating and administering programs, projects and services for the broader aboriginal community.
Your role, in whichever team you join, will play an essential part in helping us positively change lives.
