The iconic Glengyle Station is situated in the heart of Queensland’s Georgina River channel country. The property plays an important role in Kidman’s overall cattle flow, linking northern properties with southern markets. Interestingly enough, the property also marks the end of the world’s longest mail run which is an approximate 2,000km round trip.
Fed by the reliable Georgina River system, flooding channel country waterways flow through the majority of the 5,500km2 property. The property is ideal for breeding and growing its high-quality Santa Gertrudis herd.
Glengyle is also home to the heritage listed Kidman’s Tree of Knowledge. An important piece of Kidman history, it was under this large Coolibah tree that Sir Sidney Kidman camped during his first trip through this part of the country. Several years later, Kidman went on to purchase Glengyle Station, adding it to his rapidly expanding pastoral empire.
