It represents over 450 local Aboriginal residents. The Darkinjung Local Aboriginal Land Council are self-appointed caretakers of the Central Coast of NSW Australia.

Property development[edit]

The majority of the expenditure undertaken by the Darkinjung Land Council is on land and property development. In the 2012–13 financial year, $2.2 million was incurred on capital acquisition. A further $824,000 was spent on land and civil construction. This represents more than half of the annual income, which in 2012–13 was $5.5 million. In 2013–14, out of annual income of $3.6 million, $1.97 million was spent on land & construction. A further sum was spent on consultants related to the land development. No funds were allocated to education.[3]
