Wendy Kozicka believes the state government could buy Cape York’s most northern cattle station for conservation.
The owner of Bramwell Station said it wouldn’t surprise her if the Queensland government made an offer to buy the property before it goes up for auction on August 11.
The government has history in buying Cape York properties, including Springvale Station between Lakeland and Cooktown.
“It has already been suggested,” she told Cape York Weekly when asked if she thought the state might be interested.
“It would make sense in some ways because of the pristine wilderness on the eastern side of the property.”
Ms Kozicka, who owns the station with partner Vince Bowyer, said it would be a bittersweet day when Bramwell sells.
“I love this place. It’s a very special part of the world.”
