Information

The community of Billiluna today is built upon the original site of the Billiluna Station. The station still operates as a cattle station in Western Australia but not from this location. The Billiluna Pastoral Company Limited, previously known as Sturt Creek Pastoral Company Limited, was registered in 1920. In 1922 the station manager, Joseph Condren, was shot dead by a Bilingara youth. The homestead was looted. The property was placed on the market in 1925 as part of a deceased estate. At this time it occupied an area of 897,000 acres (3,630 km2) and had two wells in addition to good surface water sources. Buildings included a two-room house, beef house and harness house. Four sets of yards had also been built along with a fenced horse paddock. It was stocked with 2,500 head of cattle and about 40 horses. In 2013 the lease was held by the Aboriginal Lands Trust and managed by Mark Gordon. The location of this marker is a historical point recorded in government survey data prior to the community being established here.
