Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Selena Uibo said Jabiru is, and always has been, Aboriginal land. As the Member for Arnhem, I have heard clearly and consistently that the Mirarr traditional owners want to see Jabiru become a thriving hub for tourism, regional services and Aboriginal culture. We are supporting the Mirarr people to unlock the social and economic potential of their land, which will not just improve the lives of Aboriginal Territorians but will benefit all Territorians. Gundjeihmi Aboriginal Corporation Chairwoman Valerie Balmoore said, Mirarr will always be here to look after this country, we are happy to be working with the Government to make sure Jabiru is a great town for everyone. We have a great opportunity to show and explain the World Heritage values of Kakadu to give tourists a more meaningful experience and to connect with other Indigenous groups worldwide. Bininj (Aboriginal) people have lived here for over 65,000 years and there is a lot the world can learn about sustainable living from that history. Jabiru will be a place where we can explore new partnerships for sustainability. Jabiru Kabolkmakmen CEO Stefan Hladenki said the new office provides community members the opportunity to pop in and have a chat about the future of Jabiru.
