About Us

Discover the history of the Homestead Guesthouse. The Guesthouse was the first building in Coen built in 1933 by the Taylor family – a family who have remained in Coen and operated the Guesthouse until its sale at the end of 2010.

Adai Cape York Investments Pty Ltd, a subsidiary of the Cape York Charitable Trust – 100% Cape York Indigenous owned, purchased the Guesthouse in 2010 and appointed Balkanu Cape York Development Corporation to operate the business as a commercial indigenous enterprise.

Traditional Owners of the area wish to maintain and further promote the important heritage value of the site, which has been a social centrepiece in Cape York for more than 80 years.
