Mabel Creek is a functioning grazing property. Owned by the Antakirinja Matu-Yankunytjatjara the station is under sub-lease to Saltbush Ag.

Mabel Creek Station once housed the Tjaliri Tracking Station used in 1995 for the EXPRESS re-entry capsule mission, a collaborative program between Germany and Japan which involved the targeted landing of an unmanned re-entry capsule in the Woomera Test Range. This tracking station provided a full tracking, telemetry and command capability and included an Intelsat earth station link to the control centre in Germany.

Mabel Creek Station has previously run 20,000-25,000 sheep and Hereford-Angus cross and Santa Gertrudis-Shorthorn cross as well as a permanently agisted cattle herd through to the mid 2010s. The property was destocked prior to the station being acquired by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Commission (ATSIC) in 1994 for the Tjaliri Aboriginal Group.
