Mithaka People and Country

Mithaka People are the non-exclusive Native Title Owners for 33,752 km2 of pristine rivers, rolling gibber plains and sand hills in south west Queensland.

Mithaka People are Traditional Owners who in accordance with Mithaka customary laws and traditions have social, economic, cultural and spiritual affiliations with, and responsibilities for, Mithaka traditional land and waters. Today’s Mithaka people are formed by two major family groups – the Gorringe and McCarthy families’. Mithaka People are Traditional Owners who in accordance with Mithaka customary laws and traditions have social, economic, cultural and spiritual affiliations with, and responsibilities for, Mithaka traditional land and waters.

Our People have lived and worked across these lands for generations and hold strong connections to the ancient and contemporary systems it supports. This includes Mithaka Peoples’ connections to the region’s communities, the Barcoo and Diamantina Shires, and tourism, pastoral and mining industries operating throughout the area.

Our work over thirteen years to be recognised as Native Title Holders is testament to our commitment to Mithaka People and others with interests in Mithaka Country.

Partnering to Deliver the strategic plan

The Mithaka Strategic Plan (2017-2021) established 7 key goals to ensure the leaders entrusted with authority carry out their roles responsibly, appropriately and effectively. Each goal provides opportunity for stakeholder support and engagement that will deliver dividends for the partnership, the people and the region. The opportunity exists to support these goals through strategic partnerships, joint ventures and sponsorships.
Mithaka People wish to strengthen our individual and collective cultural identity and language, to successfully participate in local and wider society, grow sustainably into the future, and care for our Country and Culture.
