Old Andado Station

Alice Springs Darwin Katherine Ulu r u Kings Canyon

Old Andado Homestead and the associated meathouse and saddle shop are physical evidence of the establishment of pastoral activities on the edge of the Simpson Desert in the second decade of the 20th Century.

The buildings reflect the distinctive way of life in a harsh environment and in isolation with the need to use available construction resources such as acacia and grey box. The old station is of value in the understanding of human occupation in remote regions and the contribution of individuals such as the McDill brothers and Malcolm (Mac) Clark after whom the nearby Mac Clark (Acacia peuce) Conservation Reserve is named.
