Macumba Station

Located in northern South Australia, Macumba Station spans over 11,000km2.

The landscape is diverse at Macumba, making it extremely picturesque. The Macumba River flows through the property, providing almost annual flooding and excellent Channel Country equivalent grazing conditions.

Macumba also benefits from seven equipped artesian bores with enough natural pressure to supply water through an extensive pipeline network.

While the property offers diversified operations, it is primarily used for breeding, typically running up to 9,000 Santa Gertrudis/Shorthorn cattle.

Since 2017, significant improvements have been made to the station, specifically to the yards and radio communication systems.

With 10-12 staff members at any given time, there are plenty of social events around Macumba, including gymkanas and races. The staff also hold regular bbqs, camp oven nights, and other social get togethers as time permits. Good, hearty meals, prepared by our station cook, are a good chance to bring everyone together for a chat and a laugh.
