Administrative history

By 1889, Fort Bourke Station had been taken up by M P Fitzgerald & Co, whose members were Nicholas Fitzgerald, Edward Fitzgerald, Mathew O'Shanassy and Robert Prendergast. Nicholas Fitzgerald, who was a partner in Fort Bourke and other properties was a member of the Melbourne Board of Directors of Goldsbrough Mort and Company Ltd (1890 - 1896). In 1905 Samuel McCaughey bought it and then sold the station to Thomas Waddell in 1913. Fort Bourke Pastoral Company purchased the station in 1918. In 1922 the station was taken over by Arthur Bryant Triggs and in 1938 it was purchased by F S Falkiner & Sons Pty Ltd who later sold the property to K S Peken.
