Strathleven Station Archive

Strathleven Station is situated near the Palmer River on Cape York Peninsula. The area was initially taken up in 1874 by two Frenchmen, Willie and Henry de Sallis, and the original homestead was located at the junction of the King and Palmer Rivers. The Station prospered, finding a good market for its beef on the surrounding gold fields and selling horses, some of which saw service in the Indian Army.

In 1948, when these records start, the property of 600 square miles came into the hands of the Martel brothers.
