Information

Billiluna Pool was the sight of the original homestead on the Billiluna Lease. Known as Kilangkarra, the homestead was built somewhere along the pool by Joseph Condren in the early 1920's. The remains of the original stock yards are nearby. Billiluna Station was a cattle station with a strong history attached to the Canning Stock Route. In 1922, together with Tim O'Sullivan, Condren was killed with his own rifle, by an Aborigine man named Banjo whilst they were branding cattle at Bronco Yard a distance to the east.

The pool is a long waterhole in the Sturt Creek surrounded by clay and gibber flats.
