Summary Information:
Rocklea Station, often referred to as Rocklea, is a pastoral lease that once operated as a sheep station but now operates as a cattle station.

It is located about 41 kilometres (25 mi) south west of Tom Price and 42 kilometres (26 mi) north west of Paraburdoo in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.

Rocklea occupies an area of 1,849 square kilometres (714 sq mi) and shares boundaries with Turee Creek Station, Ashburton Downs, Mininer and Wyloo Stations as well as vacant crown land. The property is divided by a line of basalt hills, including Mount Jope, that splits it into a northern and southern half. Otherwise the station is composed of broad sandy and clayey plains.

The mining company Hamersley Iron, a part of Rio Tinto, currently own Rocklea. Rio Tinto own another five stations in the Pilbara, including Yarraloola, Hamersley and Juna. Collectively the properties run a herd of approximately 24,000 cattle.
