Dalhousie Station ruins

The impressive Dalhousie Springs were discovered in December 1870 by Richard Knuckey while overseeing construction of a section of the OTL north of Oodnadatta. The first pastoral lease incorporating the springs was taken out in 1873 by Edward Meade Bagot and it was Bagot who constructed the old homestead (now ruins) shown here.

Bagot sold Dalhousie Station to John Lewis in 1896 and it was one of Lewis's sons, Essington Lewis, who went on to become chief executive of the "Big Australian" or BHP.

This site exists some distance from the Oodnadatta Track.
