About Clayton Station

Clayton Station is a well known pastoral property situated on the southern end of the famous Birdsville Track in outback South Australia. The Station is approximately 1000 square miles of a variety of land and soil types.

The Eastern side of the property, where the original “Walers” (from the colony New South Wales) were bred, has good limestone and gibber country, ideal for building strong bones and feet. The station is a registered Waler Horse Stud and Clayton horses have come down cleanly through the generations from the original remount breeding lines.

“The Clayton” is renowned for its breeding of quality Beef Cattle. Our motto is to breed quality instead of quantity – drawing on a long heritage of cattle hardened by the challenging Clayton environment. Clayton also provides an oasis-like public camping ground that breaks the arduous trek along the Birdsville Track.
