From the time the Trust was established up until early 2009, Rosewood Project Management (RPM) was contracted as Executive Officer of the ILUA by Gelganyem Trust to support the implementation and ongoing operation of the ILUA and MPA, and carry out the initiatives of the Trust.
Throughout 2005 extensive work was completed by RPM, in consultation with the parties to the ILUA, to establish governance, accountability procedures, accounting and administrative processes specified in the ILUA and MPA. This work paved the way for the Traditional Owners to instigate projects and initiatives using the Trust for the social and economic benefit of Aboriginal people.
In 2009 RPM's contract finished and the Trust commenced directly employing its Executive Office personnel.

A Barramundi lives in the river at Dharram (Bandicoot Bar). One day, a crane fishing for food sees the barramundi and spears it with her beak, but is unable to catch it as the barramundi swims quickly away.
The barramundi travels up the Dunham River, past where the Worrworrum community is today, and on to Glen Hill where she scrapes some of her scales as she passes through. Today those scales can be seen near the Glen Hill community's first gate as white rock on the hillside, most clearly visible in the late afternoon.
