Welcome to

Lockhart River Aboriginal

Shire Council

We’re fortunate enough to live in one of the most beautiful parts of Australia and we are working hard to keep it that way, to keep our people safe, healthy and happy.

Our website is designed for our people to gain easy access to everything they need to know about the services and facilities we provide.

Strong Puuya, Strong Culture, Strong Future.
