In 1983, following on from the provisions of the recent NSW Aboriginal Land Rights Act, ownership of the Roseby Park was transferred to the Jerrinja Local Aboriginal Land Council
Many Jerrinja people have been strongly involved in the Aboriginal Land Rights struggles for more than fifty years. The former NSW Aboriginal "mission" Roseby Park at Orient Point was renamed Jerrinja Aboriginal Community and is located within the central-east of their country. Jerrinja are a coastal "salt-water" peoples who have maintained a strong connection with their country.
