A determination of native title by the Federal Court can be based on an agreement reached through mediation. However, where the parties are unable to reach agreement, the Court will determine the issue through normal court proceedings.

Only one determination can be made for any area, and the native titleholders are acknowledged as the exclusive indigenous owners of that area. They hold common law rights and must at very least be consulted about development on their land.

Under the protection of the common law and the Native Title Act, native titleholders have enforceable rights protecting them even against government action that affects their title.
