Strip Markers - Cones. "Talgarno" Strip Beware Cattle On Strip

The Anna Plains Station is 250 km south of Broome and runs for over 100 km along 80-mile Beach covering over 360000 hectares (almost 1 million acres) and stocking over 26,000 head of Brahmin cattle.

Traditional ownership of the northern part of Eighty Mile Beach, within the vicinity of the Anna Plains pastoral lease, is currently contested as between the Nyangumarta People and the Karajarri (or Garadjari) People. The two groups have overlapping native title claims in this area.

 

The Talgarno military base, east of Anna Plains homestead, was important in the post-Second World War period for the monitoring and recovery of British Blue Streak rockets, test-fired from Woomera, South Australia. A gravel airstrip, artesian bores and concrete blockhouses remain. In 1999 the Department of Defence test-fired a missile from a site on Anna Plains, in connection with the development of the Jindalee over-the-horizon radar project.
