Carnarvon Mission's name was changed to Ingada Village around 1975. In 1979, there were 84 children living at Ingada, but by 1983 the number of children fell to 32.
During the 1970s Carnarvon Mission and, later, Ingada Village established four 'scatter cottages' in the township and replaced Mission buildings with cottage homes for children on the old mission site. One of the cottages was called Carinya Scatter Cottage.
From 1984 there were no more children admitted to Ingada Village. However, a few children from Onslow remained at Ingada until 1986, when they were able to return to Onslow to continue their education.
The old mission site continued to offer accommodation and support for the elderly, with purpose-built facilities. On 28 January 2013, a fire destroyed many of the remaining mission-era buildings.
