Melangata Station is situated in the Yalgoo region of Western Australia between the Murchison and Midwest. The station has always been a sheep station mostly running Merino sheep until the early 2000s, now running Damara, Dorper cross meat sheep.
The station has a unique homestead that was designed by the Priest Architect, Monsignor John Hawes who spent over 20 years in the Geraldton Diocese and is responsible for the design, construction and overseeing of many Catholic churches and buildings in the area, the majority of which are still being used today.
Melangata Homestead is the only privately-owned residential John Hawes designed building in Australia and Melangata Homestead has its own tiny chapel nestled within the walls of the main building.
They offer a number of different accommodation options from an unpowered bush campsite situated near the shearing shed with access to hot showers and flush toilets.
There are dinner, bed and breakfast guest rooms in the homestead and in the future self-contained shearers quarters and cottage accommodation.
