Yambah Station

Yambah, also spelled Yamba, is a cattle station located approximately 63 km north of Alice Springs, NT in the Strangways Range and comprises approximately 2,310km2. It’s a pastoral lease and was held by the Gorey family from the 1940’s until 2018. When the rail went north of Alice (to Darwin) it intersected the property, so three rail crossings were installed on the property. Several paddocks were thus divided.

The Gorey’s put in many watering points and kept the station in excellent order. They ran 4,800 Shorthorns there and had horses for cattle work. The station is tick free and blue-tongue free and has two bitumen frontages – Stuart and Plenty highways. A very accessible station and easy access to take stock to Alice Springs. Their water and feed were a boon to drovers moving stock along the North South stock route. Harry Gorey, early in the 1900’s, was a bore contractor and knew the importance of water along the OT line and stock routes and good work horse. The bore contracting went on well past the 1940’s.
