Random information on the term “Station”:
In Australia, a station is a large landholding used for producing livestock, predominantly cattle or sheep, that need an extensive range of grazing land. It corresponds to American ranches that operate under the Taylor Grazing Act of 1934 on public lands. The owner of a station is called a pastoralist or a grazier (which correspond to the North American term “rancher”).
Originally station referred to the homestead – the owner’s house and associated outbuildings of a pastoral property, but it now generally refers to the whole holding. Stations in Australia are on Crown land pastoral leases, and may also known more specifically as sheep stations or cattle stations, as most are stock-specific, dependent upon the region and rainfall.
If they are very large, they may also have a subsidiary homestead, known as an outstation.
Sheep and cattle stations can be thousands of square kilometres in area, with the nearest neighbour being hundreds of kilometres away. Anna Creek Station in South Australia is the world’s largest working cattle station. It is roughly 24,000 square kilometres (9,300 sq mi); much larger than the runner-up, Clifton Hills, another South Australian cattle station spanning 17,000 square kilometres (6,600 sq mi); and four times the size of America’s biggest ranch, which is only 6,000 square kilometres (2,300 sq mi).
