New manager for Mataranka Station 


Charles Darwin University has appointed a new manager at Mataranka Station, south of Katherine.

CDU’s Pro Vice-Chancellor of VET, Mr John Hassed, said he looked forward to welcoming Brad Walker to the position in early February.

Mr Walker has been the station overseer since August 2010 and would take over from the acting manager, Garry Riggs.

Mr Hassed said Mr Walker would bring to the station a wealth of beef cattle industry experience in a number of states.

“Brad will make a significant contribution to the development of the facility and, no doubt, will be a highly valued member of the Mataranka Station Advisory Committee,” he said.

Mr Hassed thanked Garry Riggs for the work undertaken and major improvements made at the property under his management in the second half of last year.
