Roelands Village & Woolkabunning Kiaka Aboriginal Corporation

Roelands Village, operated by the Woolkabunning Kiaka Aboriginal Corporation is located on the picturesque Collie River, near Roelands.

The stunning Seven Hills surrounds it and their rich soils have been famous for generations for producing some of the most flavoursome fruit in WA. With lemon, limes and oranges in abundance. The farm offers agistment for cattle and Roeland Village works with universities of WA and other organisations to ensure they uphold environmental practices.

In 2013, the Village planted its first acacia Wattleseed trees which are now ready for harvest. They also produce native honey.

Refurbished timber cottages and a corporate training venue offer excellent short-stay accommodation and event facilities for families, schools and groups.

Woolkabunning Kiaka means We’ve Been There, Left and Returned to Seven Hills.


Roelands Village, also known as Roelands Native Mission or Roelands Mission, is recognised as a place of significant State Heritage historical value, used to house Aboriginal children from the Stolen Generations.

Originally, the 3.750-acre farm was the Chandler Home for Unemployed Boys, established by Peter Bell in 1928. He considered it a philanthropic venture from his time as a Justice of the Peace in the Chilredens Court. In later years, Bell created the Roelands Native Mission Farm, which was intended to be a self-sufficient, sustainable farm for Aboriginal families.

By 1941, the farm was exclusively used to house Aboriginal children. It accommodated over 500 children of the Stolen Generations over the subsequent 34 years.

On 1 July 1973, the name changed to Roelands Homes Incorporated, and it was part of the Missionary Fellowship group, along with other organisations running similar missions. 

The Churches of Christ Federal Aborigines Mission Board bought the property in 1975, which closed the mission, and converted it into Roelands Village to create a place of healing and education.

Woolkabunning Kiaka Aboriginal Corporation was established in 1974 by Allan Kickett, a former Roelands Mission resident.
