Dear customer, in the event Australia votes to become a republic the constitution will remain standing and will just be amended. The rule of law will remain. Crown land will remain under the direction of the Federal Government. I am not aware of any Bill that has been presented or discussed in draft form concerning crown land ownership being modified.

There are a lot of issues to becoming a republic which need to be addressed by the law makers at that time.

Kind regards
