Lawn Hill Queensland

Airport Lawn Hill….Landing strip

I went to Lawn Hill as the cook for the property that was a training ground for indigenous stockmen. Here they lived in bunkhouse shared rooms, and worked with a team running a station of mainly Brahmin cattle. There were horses for stockwork, motorcycles and 4 wheel drives, and they were trained as they worked the property.

IN the final stage of an agreement struck between traditional owners and miners in 1997, the Queensland Gulf country’s Waanyi People will soon assume 100 percent ownership of Lawn Hill and Riversleigh cattle stations on the Gregory River, south of Burketown. https://www.beefcentral.com/property/traditional-owners-to-acquire-100pc-of-gulf-country-cattle-stations-lawn-hill-riversleigh/

Waanyi Advancement Ltd has commenced the final stage of the 100pc acquisition of the two large grazing properties for the Traditional Owners, more than two decades after the Gulf Communities Agreement was reached with Century Mine and the State government.

Stockmen working with cattle

The 1997 GCA created the Lawn Hill Riversleigh Pastoral Holding Co (LHRPHC) with ownership of the 539,000ha pastoral properties currently split between mining company New Century Resources (formerly Century Mine- 49pc) and Waanyi Advancement Limited (51pc).

The mining company made a commitment to the Waanyi People that it would return 100pc ownership of Lawn Hill and Riversleigh to Waanyi.

“The 100pc acquisition of the cattle stations is the most significant event to happen to Waanyi and will provide a permanent source of jobs for the Indigenous people in the Gulf,” said Waanyi Elder, Eunice O’Keefe in a statement. https://www.beefcentral.com/property/traditional-owners-to-acquire-100pc-of-gulf-country-cattle-stations-lawn-hill-riversleigh/
