Historic Dunlop Station

Established 1880. The property, “Dunlop”, is the 881-hectare (2177 acres) homestead block of the former eponymous station which, in its heyday a century ago, sprawled over nearly 400,000 hectares (one million acres).

That was when “Dunlop” was one of the Bourke district holdings – along with “Toorale” and “Nocoleche” – of Sir Samuel McCaughey and his brothers.

Today, the Darling River station is owned by the Chandler family, who are working to preserve and restore the property to its original state.
