Hubert "Fred" Hardy founded Mt Bundy Station, He was a pioneer grazier and buffalo-hunter and a noted character and respected horseman
In 1940, the now-famous Adelaide River Cup was held at Mt Bundy Station. A famous competitor, with a reputation for daring, Fred was thrown from his horse during the race and died from his injuries. He was buried on the station.
