Dates of existence

1862 - 1898


In 1862 the brothers Arthur and Walter Jervoise Scott entered into a partnership with George Dalrymple and Robert G W Herbert in the Valley of Lagoons run, a well situated tract of country in the newly opened upper Burdekin district of Queensland. The partnership became Scott Bros Dalrymple & Co with Dalrymple acting as manager. Walter Scott overlanded some of the first stock from the Darling Downs north to the property. Adapting well to the conditions, Walter became managing partner at the end of 1864, when Arthur returned to England and Dalrymple went into politics. Walter remained at the Valley of Lagoons until his death in 1890. The family abandoned the station after Arthur's death in 1895.
