Back to Top
The Land Board constituted under the "Crown Lands Act 1884" served as a judiciary and administrative agency. The Land Board was empowered to hold courts and to arbitrate on any questions arising from the administration of the 1884 Act. The "Land Act 1897", in addition to transferring these functions of the Land Board to the Land Court, established the Land Appeal Court.

The Land Appeal Court is an independent Judicial Tribunal. The powers of the court were conferred by Land Acts and subsequently, the Land Court Act 2000. Sittings are held in Brisbane, as well as principal country towns and smaller centres where suitable facilities are available. The primary function of the court is to hear and determine appeals against decisions of the Land Court.
