Cardabia Station is run in conjunction with the title-holding body, Baiyungu Aboriginal Corporation (BAC). The ILC is working with the Indigenous landholders to ensure a sustainable cattle enterprise continues to operate, which will provide ongoing employment and business opportunities to the Indigenous landholders. Cardabia was purchased by the ILC in 1997 and granted to BAC in June 1998.

Four members of BAC are on the Cardabia Management Team which oversees the station’s operations. Meetings are held every quarter on the station and are chaired by a member of BAC.

The station employs up to six Indigenous people in casual positions throughout the year. The ILC has invested significantly in upgrading the infrastructure on the property, including the completion of 166km of internal and boundary fencing. This enables greater flexibility in the grazing of livestock, and is delivering herd productivity and rangeland management benefits.
 
An Ecologically Sustainable Rangeland Management (ESRM) plan, initially prepared in 2009, was revised in 2015 and is being used to guide the development of station infrastructure and grazing management.
