Hubert "Fred" Hardy founded Mt Bundy Station, He was a pioneer grazier and buffalo-hunter and a noted character and respected horseman
In 1940, the now-famous Adelaide River Cup was held at Mt Bundy Station. A famous competitor, with a reputation for daring, Fred was thrown from his horse during the race and died from his injuries. He was buried on the station.
Despite the tragic death of Fred, Mt Bundy Station continued to grow and eventually comprised a large workforce, spread over vast tracts of the Northern Territory. The station encompassed huge areas of what is now the magnifcent Kakadu National Park.
