for Dja Dja Wurrung Clan members, expressions of interest, verification card applications and access to authorisation orders
VERIFICATION CARD APPLICATION
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.
