This area of the website is for Dja Dja Wurrung members who wish to view the Authorisation orders, send an expression of interest or apply for a verification card.
About the Verification Card
Members of the Dja Dja Wurrung Native Title full group whose names are on the DDW Native Title Full Group Register will be eligible for a verification card.
The purpose of the verification card is to demonstrate a Dja Dja Wurrung person’s entitlement to exercise certain rights under the natural resources ‘authorisation orders’ that have been issued by the State government in accordance with the Recognition and Settlement Agreement.
To apply for a verification card, members can complete the “EXPRESSION OF INTEREST” form on this page as the initial stage of the required process. When approved, you will be required to complete an “APPLICATION FORM”. Member’s can not access the application form until approved by a DDW administrator.
The authorisation orders entitle Dja Dja Wurrung people who carry the verification card to:
- hunt certain species of animal;
- fish for certain species of fish;
- collect certain species of plant;
- collect certain types of forest produce;
- take water; and
- to camp on certain areas of Crown land.
Report your take
Member’s with a verification card who collect plants and/or hunt are required to report their take to Dja Dja Wurrung by filling out the form on this page.
Report Your Take
It is an obligation for all card holders to report hunting activity. You need to report back to the Dja Dja Wurrung Clans Aboriginal Corporation the number you’ve hunted each month. Limits apply to all Dja Dja Wurrung together, so check with the Corporation before you hunt. We will report the total amounts and work with the government to ensure that the amounts taken each year are sustainable.
