Indigenous Land Titling in Australia Under Three Tenures by Francis Markham and Jon Altman
Indigenous Land Titling in Australia Under Three Tenures as of 2013 by Francis Markham and Jon Altman

1. Land claimed or automatically scheduled under land rights law (an estimated 969,000 sq kms).
2. 92 determinations of exclusive possession under native title law totaling 752,000 sq kms.
3. 142 determinations of non-exclusive possession under native title law totaling 825,000 sq kms.
The last category often provides a weak form of property right that needs to be shared with other interests, most commonly commercial rangeland pastoralism. These three categories total 2.5 million sq kms or roughly 33 per cent of terrestrial Australia.
