About Caroonboon Station

View of Caroonboon Station

In August 2014 the late Bill Pye and his wife Margie purchased Caroonboon Station a 74,408 acre property located 22 kms west of Wanganella with frontage to the Billabong Creek on the Riverine Plain.

The property formerly owned by the Dickson family, has a mixture of soils and is covered by large stands of salt bush and native grasses. The Riverine Plain area is also renown for producing large bodied medium woolled sheep.

The purchase of the property fitted well with the strategic plan of incorporating a commercial sheep operation to compliment the stud operation. Operated and managed correctly Caroonboon Station would ensure a reliable income through dry times due to its vegetation mix of salt bushes and grasses. The property is currently running over 15,000 breeding ewes.

The property is managed for us by John Stephens and he is assisted by Harry Agar and Phil Dougherty in the day to day activities.
