About this project:

Based at Oenpelli in west Arnhem Land and owned by the traditional Aboriginal landowners, Gunbalanya Meat Supply Pty Ltd (GMS) has operated a station and meatworks for many years. The meatworks is based in the community and the station encompasses the surrounding floodplain and high country. David became involved while working at the Northern Land Council where he facilitated a long-term lease and infrastructure development project. When David established Terrabos, lessee, the Indigenous Land Corporation, engaged his services to continue working with the GMS Board and local community. Ten years on, David continues to work with the ILC and GMS Board plus community stakeholders and his relationship with the Oenpelli community is still very strong.
