The Australian Outback's Largest Cattle Stations

Outback Books


Australia's cattle stations are the largest in the world and I am the only photographer to have spent more than 30 years specialising in photographing and writing about them.

These famous but little-known properties are spread across the most remote parts of Australia:


  • Cape York Peninsula
  • Gulf Country
  • Channel Country

Northern Territory:

  • Barkly Tableland
  • Victoria River District
  • red centre

South Australia:

  • Birdsville Track
  • Lake Eyre region

Western Australia:

  • East and West Kimberley.

I've produced 3 coffee-table style books featuring more than 800 of the best photos I've taken since 1984, and the photos are accompanied by interesting captions.

Thousands of copies have been sent around the world. These books are unique and the best quality available. But you don't need to take my word for it - read comments from some book buyers on the Testimonials page. You may see a comment form someone you know!

    Other outback book and card information - delivery times, payment and GST information, signed books, how to arrange a gift to be sent to someone else, etc.

Generally, I only visit cattle stations still using stockhorses - which is most cattle stations in northern Australia and far south western Queensland.  Quite a few of the largest cattle stations measure 10,000 square kilometres or more. Stations this size usually run between 20,000 and 60,000 head of cattle each, depending on the carrying capacity of the land and the seasonal conditions, and mobs of 1,000 cattle or more are common.  Photography trips only occur during the busy dry season when mustering is in full swing, and the specific properties visited depend on local seasonal conditions plus other factors.
