ABOUT EMU CREEK STATION

The station is steeped in Australia's wool history but is now a working cattle station producing quality cattle to feed people world wide. Emu Creek has recently seen a change of ownership from the previous owners, Darryl and Joyce Penny, to Kimberley Pastoralists, the Elezovich family, in early 2017. Kurt and Nikki Elezovich are passionate about the land, their livestock and the Pastoral Industry in Northern Australia. 


Emu Creek Station was established in 1891 and covered nearly half a million acres where up to 20,000 sheep were grazed and shorn. The rich history of Emu Creek Station can be seen in the current homestead and the 12-stand Oregon Wool Shed, however, the true beauty of the station is in it's landscape and wildlife. From the red dusty gravel road, the rocky outcrops and the picturesque vista from the riverbanks, Emu Creek Station is an iconic piece of the Pilbara landscape.


Today we proudly breed predominantly Drought-Master cattle, conduct an official weather recording station and provide camping sites to the public so that everyone can experience the beauty of our surrounding countryside. 


A trip to our local supermarket is 500 kilometre round trip, so we either grow what we eat or have our stores delivered by the mail truck once a week. Our pantry has to be fairly well stocked!
