Queensland South Native Title Services, or QSNTS, is a Native Title Service Provider funded by the Australian Government under section 203FE of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) and has responsibility for a region covering almost two-thirds of Queensland.

QSNTS was first granted ministerial recognition on 7 July 2005 and has operated continuously from that date.  We are now one of Australia’s largest native title organisations with offices in Brisbane and Mount Isa.

QSNTS receives operational funding from the Australian Government through the National Indigenous Australians Agency (NIAA), and is a Public Company Limited by Guarantee. Our organisation is governed by an independent Board of Directors which oversees the strategic direction of the company and its operations.

To achieve our company’s vision and objective, QSNTS focuses on:

  • the provision of native title services as prescribed by the Native Title Act;
  • enhancing the capability of Traditional Owners to be autonomous in pursuing and exercising native title rights; and
  • advocating for reform and improvement of the native title system.
