Information

NO TOURISM. NO CAMPING.
Alexandria is an oasis community in the midst of the Barkly Tableland, N.T. Driving towards it from a distance it’s hard to believe the sight of different vegetation on the horizon is actually the large station complex. Alexandria Station is made up of three station complexes; the main homestead Alexandria, which is located on the Playford River, and two outstations; Soudan on the Rankin River and Gallipoli on the eastern side of the property. Employing over 50 staff between the three places, Alexandria is a hive of activity during the mustering season. Each outstation having a stockcamp of six people, as well as a mustering stock camp and weaner camp at Alexandria. The station has two road trains pulling 6 decks each, that is mainly used to cart weaners to the main cattle yards for processing.

A full time bore mechanic is employed to maintain upkeep of 164 bores, along with 5 full time pumpers, employed to start pumps and clean troughs. Each year over 6,000 round bales of Mitchell grass is cut and stored on property to feed weaners during the mustering season.
