There have been a small number cases since the Mabo judgment that have helped refine the definition of native title and clarify how the Native Title Act operates.

The questions left unanswered by Mabo included which specific acts or grants extinguish native title, the extent to which native title covers seas and waterways, and if native title would include rights of access to, and control of, resources.

Other questions raised by the recognition of native title includes Indigenous peoples' right to self-government and the recognition of other aspects of Aboriginal law.
