NAPCO purchased Monkira in 1939.
Monkira is located on the Diamantina River in Queensland’s Channel Country. It adjoins NAPCO owned Coorabulka to the north and is NAPCOs southern most Channel Country property.
Monkira is dominated by the mighty flood plains of the Diamantina River, which produce highly productive pastures of blue bush and native sorghum.
