VICTORIA RIVER DOWNS STATION
Victoria River Downs is a famed and iconic cattle station in Australia that has been operating for over 100 years. It was once the world’s largest pastoral lease with an area of 41,000 km². The property was originally established back in 1880 and was stocked with 20,000 head of cattle, over landed by the famous Nat Buchanan. Now days, the total area of the VRD lease stretches across 8,900 km² and runs just shy of 100,000 head of cattle. It is run as four separate stations – VRD, Moolooloo, Pigeon Hole and Mt Sanford.
In 2016 we added Humbert River as an out-station to Victoria River Downs, which added an additional 10,000 head of cattle and an additional 108,000 hectares.
