Hello
Where do I go to find contact information or information if a station is active or not in Western Australia?
Thanks.

Pastoral Lands Board may be able to assist.

If you are after a list of Stations taken over by DPAW give them a ring in Como. They should be able to email you a list.

I've also got a WA Pastoral map that I think I downloaded from a govt website and created the map for OziExplorer, So when you're driving (or planning) you know which station you're on.

I had to rename the .ozf4 file to WA_PastoralMap.ozf4 to make it work.

I haven't uploaded any files to this website so didn't know how they turn out. Files need to have .ozf4 & .map extensions

Frank,

The reason for the rename is that the third line in the .map file must match the name of the actual "map" file exactly.
Of course, there are two ways to fix this:
1. Rename the "map" file to match, as you did, or
2. Edit the .map file so that it contains the correct name of the "map" file.

Incidentally, the second line of the .map file contains anything you like and will be shown on the OziExplorer map page as the map "title".

(You may already know this, but I've just provided the info for curious others.)

Regards
Barry

Thanks Barry, all good. Yes, I'm across that, being a long time Ozi user. When I called that pastoral map up in Ozi, I got an error message saying what .ozf4 filename it was looking for but couldn't find. I renamed the .ozf4 file to what Ozi wanted and voila.

Yes, sorry guys. I made an error with the filenames when I uploaded it and I think this caused your pain.

Hi Guys,

Perhaps if you “Google” the station it may throw up a contact number or address.

"Google" is not giving me what I'm looking for, so hoping the other ideas listed will help me find the info I'm after. thanks

Perusing the Yellow Pages, either hard copy or digital, under the heading "Graziers", in the area you plan to visit, may bring some success?

A more laborious search, in the White Pages, under the station name, might score a few hits, but I'd suggest most stations would be listed under the owner's name, whether a pastoral company or family name.

Another stumbling block would be the continual acquisition of neighbouring properties, by an individual, who then runs the 2-4 holdings as one, often with limited, or no staff, on these acquisitions. Phone still works, but no one's there to answer it!

An inquiry to local stock & station agents in the area, ie Elders, Nuitrein, Ray White, etc might score a phone number or three, providing you didn't sound like you were casing the place, prior to relieving the grazier of his plant & equipment.

Good luck
Bob

Thanks Bob, yeh google, yellow/white pages not much luck for what I'm looking for, but I think the mines/pastoral/DPAW as recommended will help.

The local shire council may be another avenue.
There is a lot of difference between
‘Human Being’ and ‘Being Human’.
