Established in 1938 and located in the Bunbury Region of W.A; the farm closed down and was opened shortly afterwards a new facility was opened by the Churches of Christ Federal Aborigines Mission Board Inc. The property, now known as Roelands Village, is now administered by the Woolkabunning Kiaka Inc. after it was founded in 1974.

Woolkabunning Kiaka Inc. looks at creating a positive place for healing and development for the children and their families who were placed at the Roelands Mission Farm throughout the 1940s until the early 1970s,
