Yeeda Station Stays
For outback history, genuine outback hospitality and a landscape full of amazing plants and animals – Yeeda Station is just a short drive off the Great Northern Highway.
VISIT THE HISTORICAL YEEDA STATION, a working cattle station in the Kimberley Region of Western Australia, located 160kms east of Broome. Yeeda encompasses the Fitzroy River mouth and vast coastal floodplains.
Yeeda was settled in 1881 by the Murray Squatting Company that sailed to the north in a schooner from Pinjarra. It was first stocked with sheep then converted to cattle a few years later, which were more suited to the environment.
The Yeeda floodplains are a convergence of several stock routes where cattle from the inland Kimberley were staged and either travelled south on the De Grey stock route or north into the Derby meatworks. Yeeda’s history is filled with stories of hardship due to floods, droughts and isolation.
Yeeda Station was once part of the Sir Sidney Kidman Empire and has changed hands several times over the years. Yeeda was purchased by the current owners, Jack and Vicki Burton, in 1999 for Yeeda Pastoral Company.
