This document showcases an initiative by the Arafura Swamp Rangers Aboriginal Corporation (ASRAC) to establish a new Indigenous Protected Area (IPA) in northern Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory. It complements the ASRAC Healthy Country Plan (HCP) and presents additional information relevant to the establishment of an IPA and accession to the National Reserve System.

In detailing the exceptional natural and cultural values of this area a clear case is made for Government support for the development and operation of the proposed Arafura Swamp Indigenous Protected Area.
