Indigenous, working cattle station. Private no entry.
In 2006, Yawuru were granted native title over 530,000 hectares of land in and around Rubibi (the town of Broome), including the Roebuck Plains Station and the depot.

The station and the depot were divested back to Yawuru in 2014, recognising Yawuru’s traditional ownership of the area, with the ILSC managing the station and the depot via a lease agreement.

In February 2022, Yawuru took over the pastoral operations of the station, and will work with the ILSC to transfer operations of the export depot in the future.

The station is managed and run as a successful pastoral enterprise and balances Yawuru cultural values in the overlapping IPA areas. Development of new enterprises and technology including pivot irrigation is undertaken collaboratively with Yawuru and the station management to ensure sustainable land use and positive outcomes for the enterprise.

The Native Title Rights of Yawuru People is recognised, as is their right to access Gumaranganyjal. A policy has been endorsed that will apply to all visitors to the Station.
