The LNAC Journey 

Our beginning

Larrakia Nation Aboriginal Corporation was set up in 1997 through the Northern Land Council to provide a corporate identity for Larrakia people to uphold Native Title claims.

In 20 years, we’ve grown to represent the Traditional Owners of the Darwin region and to speak on behalf of Larrakia people while delivering community and outreach services to the broader Darwin community.

Today we operate 40 programs under five managers with the collective vision of Living Longer, Living Stronger. 

Our services include:

  • Aged Care and Disability services
  • Larrakia Land and Sea Rangers
  • Night and Day Patrol
  • Healthy Engagement and Assistance in the Long Grass (HEAL)
  • Return to Country
  • Kinship Care
  • Tenancy support
  • Family and Cultural Care
  • Larrakia Hosts
