Armraynald Station is one of Paraway’s large-scale cattle breeding operations, set in far north Queensland, just off the Gulf of Carpentaria and adjacent to the eastern side of Burketown. The breeding herd consists of Brahman stock which are well suited to the heat of the north.
Armraynald’s network of rivers means that it is naturally well watered. Flooding during the wet season coupled with the property’s rich black soils produces a reliable stand of feed. In addition to the natural watercourses, the station has an abundance of man-made watering points that provides high volumes of good quality water for livestock. The landscape consists of open plains and shaded areas.
Armraynald’s team musters the vast property each year by horse, motorbike and helicopter. Several new state-of-the-art yards are the pride of the property and allow for efficient and low-stress stock handling. Upon weaning, heifers and steers from Armraynald are sent to the Paraway fattening properties throughout Queensland.
The homestead includes comfortable living quarters, a staff kitchen and recreation club. The property’s rivers are abundant with barramundi and mudcrab and fishing is a popular pastime.
