Mileura (MY-lyou-ra) "To see a long way"

Mileura Capital was founded in 2019

Henry Walsh founded Mileura Capital in 2019 as a boutique commodities investment and advisory firm. It is focused on financing, investing and trading in global commodity markets.
We help firms build sustainable supply chains in the transition towards a less carbon and resource intensive future.

The name Mileura comes from the name of Mileura Station, a broadacre cattle and sheep grazing property founded in the 1880’s by the Walsh Family. It is located about 100km’s west of Meekatharra W.A. Literally in the middle of nowhere. 

The property was named Mileura after the name of the highest elevation in the area and it literally means “to see a long way”. The hill was named this by Indigenous people of the Njanta community who were working as trackers with the explorer Frank Wittenoom in1875.

Today, at Mileura, we like to think we offer the same long-term perspective when working with clients and partners.
