Information

Macumba Station in the far North of South Australia holds the secret of Curio's birth,the famous buckjumperof Marrabel in SA. The heart of this 4000 square mile station is some 40klm north-east of Oodnadatta and less than 96 klm from the fringe of the Simpson desert with its seemingly endless near-parallel sand ridges, restless, shifting and forbidding.'
The name Kidman has had a long, unbroken association with this station, in itself a mere fragment of the vast sprawling empire over which the Cattle King rules - an empire which at its zenith covered a breathtaking area of 100,000 square miles.
Macumba was a strategic link in the chain of stations which reached into three states and provided part of a boundless, variable freeway along which many thousands of head of cattle and many thousands of horses of all shapes, colors and sizes moved leisurely through Kidman country on their way to southern markets.
