Pincally Station is the home to Matt and Zanna Gale and their three daughters Bella, Lucy and Millie, and was originally settled in the early 1900s by the Moyle family, and consists of 65, 893 hectares of grazing land under Western Lands Lease.
It has been owned by the Gale family since 1990. The rugged Mount Arrowsmith Hills, named by Sturt during his expedition through the region, form a backdrop to the property and homestead.
The property consists of mainly sandhill country interspersed with seasonal creeks and box swamps. Vegetation consists of summer grasses, winter herbages and wildflowers when in season. There are many varieties of native animals and birds including, kangaroo's, emu's, sand goanna's, wedge-tail eagles, finches, and budgies just to name a few.
Wool, lamb and beef are the primary products grown on Pincally. Stock work is carried out at various times of the year. These times include shearing, calf making and sale of livestock. Pincally is currently managed under organic guidelines and has been for the past 5 years. Organics were introduced to the property to utilize the clean, green environment we live in.
Matt and Zannas daughters are educated through Broken Hill School of the Air via satellite lessons and distance education. If you are interested in seeing how the school of the air operates you may sit and experience an air lesson in the schoolroom with the children. The children are always willing to show off their unique way of learning.
