Is there a future for Jabiru after 2021
The Commonwealth Government, the NT Government, Energy Resources of Australia Ltd (ERA) and the Mirarr Traditional Owners represented by Gundjeihmi Aboriginal Corporation (GAC) are committed to Jabiru having a future beyond mining. These four parties are working together to develop a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to provide certainty for residents, businesses and the tourism industry.
The four parties working together are referred to as the MoU Parties and are undertaking strategic planning to reposition Jabiru post-mining, to a sustainable tourism and regional services hub. This will include the continuation of government and community services for the West Arnhem region, improved tourism visitation to Kakadu National Park and positioning Jabiru as the hub for government services and tourism-related businesses.
The Commonwealth is responsible for Kakadu National Park and has committed to a significant financial investment in reinvigorating the park.
