The first cattle station in the Northern Territory was begun by a Dr Brown from England in 1877.

The property consisted of about 360 square miles. This is one of the original buildings - the roof has been replaced to protect the rest of the dwelling.

The cattle staion has since been broken up, but it was a great experience staying in a motel room on the property, now called Springvale Homestead, about 8kms out of the town of Katherine on the Stuart Highway.
