The Abm Elgoring Ambung Aboriginal Corporation RNTBC acts as an agent for the native title rights and interests of the Kowanyama People in south-west Cape York. The native title rights and interests of the Kowanyama people were recognised in Kowanyama People determination in 2009. In 2012, the Kowanyama people had two more native title claims recognised in Kowanyama People #2 and Kowanyama People #3. The combined area of all three claims is approximately 19,800 square kilometres. 

The name ‘Kowanyama’ means ‘the place of many waters’ and the area includes the Mitchell River System which has a tidal ecosystem where seasonal watering occurs over 40km. The significant wetlands area continues to be used and monitored and managed by the traditional owners. 

The Abm Elgoring Ambung PBC runs Kowanyama camping and rents out four camping grounds on their traditional country to tourists in the area.
