Buyers for stations

A VICTORIAN agricultural group has emerged as the new owner of two Kimberley stations that are said to be home to many examples of a mysterious Aboriginal art form called Bradshaws.

Dunkeld Pastoral Co has taken over the leases of Theda and Doongan stations, which cover more than 6000,000 hectares near the Drysdale River National Park.

Dunkeld chief operating officer Robert Harris refused to discuss the company’s plans for the properties, but station management has already ruled any tourism ventures.

The company’s previous links to the Bradshaws, unusual rock art thought to pre-date the earliest known cave paintings in the world, comes though its director Maria Myers.

Ms Myers and Dame Elisabeth Murdoch were sponsors of Bradshaw Art Of The Kimberley, a controversial book by researcher Grahame Walsh.
