Melangata Station was first taken up as a pastoral lease in the early 1900s. It has had mixed fortunes over the years and at one point after the second world war it was abandon for some years.
The Homestead is very unusual as it was designed by Monsignor John Hawes who was a local Priest architect who was responsible for the design and construction of many buildings in the Midwest of Western Australia including the Catholic Cathedral in Geraldton and Our Lady of Carmel Church and buildings in Mullewa. Melangata Homestead is the only privately owned residential building he designed apart from his Hermitage in the Bahamas in the world.
Melangata Station is situated centrally to beautiful displays of wildflowers when the seasons are good we are also a nice drive away to the Historic town of Cue. Along the road to Cue you will also find the Dalgaranga Meteorite Crater and Walga Rock and lovely scenery along the way.
