Mt Tabor Station

QLD

The ILSC funded the establishment of a property management plan for Mount Tabor and major upgrades to water infrastructure, stockyards, buildings and fencing.

Mount Tabor Station, 700 km west of Brisbane in Queensland, was purchased by the ILSC in 1997 for its cultural significance to the Bidjara people, with many cultural, burial, rock art and stencilling sites spread across the grazing property.

In 2011, the ILSC started divestment discussions with Bidjara Traditional Owners Limited and in 2014 Goorathuntha Traditional Owners Limited was formally established and began managing the station.

Goorathuntha Traditional Owners Limited developed plans for a healing centre on Mount Tabor to deliver programs to address the social and emotional wellbeing needs of Indigenous people.
