Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton says ambitious people pushing political agendas were responsible for falsely convicting her of her daughter's murder.

Deputy NT Coroner Elizabeth Morris on Tuesday found that a dingo killed Azaria Chamberlain while the family was on a camping trip at Uluru in 1980.

Ms Chamberlain-Creighton was sentenced to life in prison in 1982 for murdering Azaria, but was exonerated in a 1987 Royal Commission.

Speaking on Macquarie Radio on Wednesday, Ms Chamberlain-Creighton said she had experienced good and bad elements within the police and media.

"You've got those who had their own agendas and were determined to push those agendas ... along with some political ambitions and other things like that," she said.

Ms Chamberlain-Creighton said she would reveal the full details of her story in the future.

"There are a few names and as you know in Australia the truth is not a defence for libel and you have to wait for a few more people to drop-off," she said.

Pursuing a series of legal proceedings to clear her name and to establish what exactly happened to her daughter had cost her and her family a significant amount of money, she said.

"Before the last two inquests ... we were up to $5.5 million and the crown was over $25 million."

Asked if anyone had phoned to apologise to her, Ms Chamberlain-Creighton replied: "You are being funny, aren't you?"
