Treaties with Indigenous peoples of Australia
No substantial treaty has been entered into between the government of Australia and the Indigenous people of Australia. As of 2017[update] Australia is the only Commonwealth country that does not have such a treaty. Some prior treaties exist in pockets, such as Batman's Treaty, but these are not substantial government treaties, i.e. treaties between the Government of the day and the traditional custodians of the land.[further explanation needed]
