Historic cattle deal makes Kimberley Traditional Owners a force to be reckoned with

Kimberley Agriculture and Pastoral Company
  • In a multi-million dollar deal, Walalakoo Aboriginal Corporation (WAC) has acquired Myroodah Station in the Kimberley region of WA

  • WAC will sub-lease the station to the Indigenous-owned Kimberley Agriculture and Pastoral Company

  • The Kimberley Agriculture and Pastoral Company will become the biggest Indigenous-owned cattle venture in the region 

  • Walalakoo land holding is a major shareholder in KAPCO, which is the management company 

In a landmark $11.5m deal, Walalakoo Aboriginal Corporation has today acquired Myroodah Station in Western Australia’s north-west after four years of negotiations with the Indigenous Land Corporation. 

The station is spread over 400,000 hectares and currently holds 17,000 head of cattle. Walalakoo plans to sub-lease the station to the Indigenous-owned Kimberley Agriculture and Pastoral Company (KAPCO). 

KAPCO Chairman Wayne Bergmann says the acquisition is a game-changer for Indigenous business in the region. 

“Our vision for KAPCO is to revitalise the Kimberley’s pastoral industry by improving the infrastructure on a number of Indigenous-owned cattle stations so that they can once again operate at commercial capacity.”

“With the cattle on Myroodah, across the four KAPCO stations we now have a 50,000-strong herd. The multiplier effect of this is immense, considering the jobs and business opportunities it will create. KAPCO’s activities will stimulate the whole regional economy,” Mr Bergmann says.  

KAPCO is now comprised of four stations—Mt Anderson, Bohemia Downs, Frazier Downs and Myroodah—making it the largest Indigenous-owned cattle venture in the region.

Mr Bergmann says Kimberley Aboriginal people have a storied history in the region’s pastoral industry.  

“Our old people were once the backbone of the pastoral industry in the Kimberley. Unfortunately, at that time, they weren’t paid for their work. They received food, water, the clothes on their backs and a bit of tobacco. KAPCO is about putting Aboriginal people in the driver’s seat so we can create economic independence for ourselves on our own traditional lands. We don’t want to be reliant on government funding, we want to create our own jobs and our own opportunities,” Mr Bergmann says. 

Running a successful cattle business is only part of the plan for the KAPCO stations. A framework is also being developed for a youth diversionary project that would see young people who have had contact with the justice system living and working out on one of KAPCO's stations. The Marlanmanu Project would be supported by health, educational and cultural wrap-around services provided by local Aboriginal organisations.

KRED's Chair appointed to Aboriginal Water and Environmental Advisory Group

Peter Murray Yanunijarra Aboriginal Corporation

Peter Murray, KRED’s Chair and Yanunijarra Aboriginal Corporation CEO, has just been notified of his appointment to the WA Aboriginal Water and Environmental Advisory Group. This is great news for our members, because it means we have a seat at the table when it come to influencing policy and decisions around the use of our water. As a Traditional Owner from the Great Sandy Desert, Peter appreciates the importance of water. Many of Yanunijarra’s activities over the last few years have centred around understanding water from both a cultural perspective and a Western science perspective. Yanunijarra has been gathering baseline data against which their rangers can measure the impacts of climate change and development. We’re glad that Yanunijarra will now be able to participate in these conversations at a state level.
