The purpose of this Act is to authorize the granting of public land for Aboriginal cultural and burial purposes. The Act provides for the closure of roads in the areas (sect. 4), extinguishes existing rights on the land (sect. 5), prohibits the sale of land (sect. 7) and states that no compensation is payable by the Crown in respect of anything done under or arising out of this Act (sect. 9). The Act is completed by four Schedules: Land in respect of which reservations and Crown Grants are revoked, Plan of Coranderrk Mission Cemetery and access road, Plan of Ebenezer Mission Cemetery and Plan of Ramahyuck Mission Cemetery and access road.
