The High Court has upheld a previous ruling of the Federal Court, which found that the Ngaliwurru and Nungali peoples are entitled to compensation for "cultural loss" caused by the construction of infrastructure such as roads and water pipelines on native title land. The court ruling is limited to 1.26sq km of land at Timber Creek in the Northern Territory, but lawyers says it is likely to prompt similar compensation claims by native title holders across Australia.
