The majority of the determination is for non-exclusive use, meaning it will not effect freehold land, or the use of public reserves, roads or the foreshore. However, Quandamooka people can now conduct ceremonies, use traditional natural resources and conduct burial rites on the area.

They'll also have joint management of island's national parks, including future parks when all the island's sand mines are closed by 2025. They'll also receive a share of mining royalties, but the amount is confidential.

As part of the declaration, 2200ha has been designated for exclusive indigenous use only, near Amity and Dunwich.
