Peppimenarti is a cattle station in the Northern Territory near the Daly River, owned by First Nations people. Beginning by rounding up descendants of cattle who had strayed from other stations, the station has turned to a successful business enterprise with $1m turnover p.a. First Nations law takes precedence over European law, and all able-bodied men on the station must work, with none allowed to go on the dole. Peppimenarti stands as a shining example of the Outstation Movement, and has successfully combined western business sense with local customs.
