The Aboriginals spoke their own language, had their own laws and customs, and mostly a strong connection with the country’s land. The British arrived to the shores and declared Australia ‘terra nullius’ meaning empty land that belongs to no body. The land clearly wasn’t uninhabited but the Indigenous people no longer had the right to use the land as they please freely. Under international law Australia was now British land. As a result, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders occupation of and unique connection with the land weren’t recognised and the British took the land without agreement or payment.
It was ultimately the success of Mabo’s case, which pushed through the change needed in Australia. The Motivations that pushed Mabo to fight for land rights Eddie Mabo thought that the best years of his life, came from growing up on Mer island, the island to him, was his safe place, away from the troubles of poverty and the xenophobic nature of the Caucasian culture of Australia, a place that was filled with a recognizable culture and language, a place where the community were caring and selflessly helped one another.

Although Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander customary laws are shown to be harsh, even brutal at times, Australian law has changed to integrate this cultural heritage. Although uncommon, customary law has been applied in legal rulings, as seen in cases involving Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people (Colin Goodsell v Galarrwuy Yunupingu).

Here a compensation tribunal was set up to compensate the families of victims who had died in the Stardust tragedy. The grieving father of one victim sought a review of a decision made by the tribunal to award the mother of a victim compensation and the father no compensation. The court refused to quash the decision of the tribunal and, strangely, agreed that there were circumstances which justified awarding of compensation to one parent and not the other.
