Station

Quobba Station is 80km north west of Carnarvon, Western Australia with 80km of harsh, unpredictable and spectacular coastline (Indian Ocean) as its western boundary and Lake McLeod as its eastern boundary. 60km from the Quobba homestead is the picturesque Red Bluff.

The Meecham’s have been on Quobba Station for 32 years, with Tim, Sara and family here for the last 14 years. The station runs around 10000 damaras (South African meat sheep). Visitors began coming to Quobba to fish from the many challenging rock platforms over 50 years ago. Accommodation development has been established around the Quobba homestead and Red Bluff with luxury eco safari tents being built in 2004.

History

History

The station was established in 1898 and is bounded by Gnarloo Station to the north, Lake McLeod and Boolathana Station to the East/South and the Indian Ocean to the west. The station is aprox 187000 acres measuring 80km of WA’s spectacular rugged coastline north to south and aprox 14km east to west.

Some of the original cottages surrounding the Homestead include, Smithies – originally the Black Smiths Workshop, The Stables – was the tack room that held saddles and riding equipment, The Cottage – was the overseer’s residence, The Long Cottage – was the garage for the station with the inspection pit still in one of the bedrooms, The Outcamp – was the jackaroos quarters. The Shearing quarters were used for shearers accommodation until 2005 when the station changed from merino sheep to demaras (hairy not wooly therefore there is no shearing now)
