About Warroora Station
Warroora (pronounced Warra) is a family-run, 265,000-acre working pastoral station with 50km of coastline frontage to the Indian Ocean backing into the World Heritage-listed Ningaloo Reef.
We acknowledge and pay respects to the Baiyungu people as the Traditional Custodians of the lands and waters of Warroora. We pay our respects to their ancestors and Elders past, present and emerging. We acknowledge their families and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and sky.
The Baiyungu People
For over 38,000 years Cardabia Station (Warroora's northern neighbour) and Warroora have been the core of Baiyungu heartlands. Warroora Station recognises and supports Baiyungu ownership of the land and respects their Native Title interests.
The earliest recorded lease was 20,000 acres taken up by The Quailborough Squatting Co. (Wattes Howard and others of Champion Bay) on 1st January 1880. The Horak family purchased the lease on 9th December 1994; they moved from sheep to meat bread cattle in 2016 due to wild dog infestation. Warroora is home to Marty Horak and his family.
