Welcome

Based in Karratha, Western Australia, Robe River Kuruma Aboriginal Corporation’s vision is to work together as a community to establish a solid foundation towards independence, community wellbeing and cultural identity now and for future generations.

Robe River Kuruma Aboriginal Corporation (RRKAC) is the registered native title body corporate for Robe River Kuruma (RRK) native title determined areas.

The RRK people have traditional rights to an area covering nearly 16, 000 square kilometres in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. Their lands lie within the Shire of Ashburton, and around the township of Pannawonica, and comprise part of the Fortescue River and the complete river system of the Robe River, in the most westerly part of the Hamersley Range.
