Historically Kallara Station, established in 1857 with an area of 1 million acres -, was one of the original big "runs" in western New South Wales and stretched approximatly 130 km from the Darling River taking in the Cuttuburra and Paroo Rivers.

In its' heyday, Kallara shore 400,000 sheep and boasted a steam driven mechanical shearing shed of 44 stands and a riverside wool scour. Initially wool was transported down the Darling River by paddle steamers to wool centres in Victoria and South Australia. When a railhead was established at Bourke in 1896, bullock wagons and camel trains became the transport of choice. These days it is by diesel powered trucks pulling "road trains" loaded with wool bales to any destination.
