Pardoo is a working cattle station and is the home to approx 7,500 head of Santa Gertudis cattle and some Brahman. The land area stretches approximately along the Indian Ocean coastline with tidal creeks and small islands off the shore.
The station has an added value uniqueness due to the substantial water supply, with the artesian Canning Basin located below the lease. 10 gigalitres of allocated water to Pardoo, with 2½ gigalitres currently utilised to run the station. The water has a massive operating cost-saving as the water comes to the surface at 35 P.S.I without pumping – under its own pressure, from 70 metre to 250 metre depths. 4 key, 10 inch bores are supported by 4 inch bores which more than adequately water livestock through 55 outlets (troughs).
During the mid ‘90s the Station was opened to tourists and this has proved very successful with visiting numbers now averaging 500 total visitors at peak. Accommodation provided is varied – suitable for families, backpackers, corporate guests or mining interests, there is also a 145 bay caravan park, store, restaurant and pool on site.
Proximity to Port Hedland has made Pardoo an attractive option for corporate clients. The Station prides itself in maintaining a relaxed and friendly atmosphere to help guests unwind after a hard day’s work. After work or on their day off visitors are welcome to use the pool, head down to the beach, or go fishing.
Wildlife is abundant with a variety of birds, emus and kangaroos commonly sighted.
