Merepah Station is located on Cape York Peninsula, 550 kilometres north-west of Cairns. The 186,000ha property operates as a cattle breeding enterprise to support the achievement of benefits for Indigenous Australians.
The ILSC has invested in the infraastructure on the property and has built a new homestead, quarters for station hands and jackaroos, head stockman’s accommodation, meat house, machinery sheds and cattle yards. Livestock watering points, fences and outstation yards have been constructed to increase the grazing capacity.
Employees have undertaken a range of training qualifications including Certificate II and/or III in Agriculture (Beef Production), with trainees also undertaking a horsemanship course to complement the certificate courses.
Traditional owners continue to visit Merepah and enjoy activities such as fishing and hunting.
