YMAC’s Renewable Energy Guide is now live! 

This new digital guide aims to promote the highest engagement standards and provide a practical tool to guide project negotiations between Renewable Energy developers and First Nations peoples.

It draws on the expertise of YMAC’s experienced lawyers who have been supporting renewable energy project negotiations across our representative areas, other team members from a range of disciplines, and external experts. You can view the guide here. 


Geraldton office relocation

The YMAC Geraldton Office have settled into their new temporary location as the building at 171 Marine Terrace will undergo much needed renovations, commencing later in 2024.

YMAC signage was installed at the new premises this week, so the office is now easily located at 144 Flores Road in Webberton.

We apologise for any inconvenience you may have experienced during the changeover period. We look forward to welcoming visitors to the new office.

Country is our mother, the provider and keeper of cultural belongings. Country and Culture go together. You can’t have one without the other.

Yamatji Marlpa Aboriginal Corporation respectfully acknowledges the Traditional Owners and custodians throughout Western Australia, and on whose Country we work. We acknowledge and respect their deep connection to their lands and waterways.

We honour and pay respect to Elders, and to their ancestors who survived and cared for Country.

Our offices are located on Whadjuk Country, Southern Yamatji Country, Yinggarda Country, Kariyarra Country, and Yawuru Country. We recognise the continuing culture, traditions, stories and living cultures on these lands and commit to building a brighter future together.
