Ucharonidge

Ucharonidge

Ucharonidge Station was purchased by CPC in August 2008.

Bought for its similarity to Newcastle Waters and it’s location, this 2,455 sq km property adjoins Newcastle Waters station to the South and is used as a breeder block with seasonal opportunistic fattening. Predominantly open down country, Ucharonidge also has a mix of bluebush swamps in the south and scattered areas of spinifex and lancewood.

It will run approximately 15,500 head and is operated in conjunction with Newcastle Waters and Dungowan stations.
