Description :

Portrait of J. Warland from Aroona from the S.A. Northern Pioneers' composite, 1850-1859 (shown in position on B 6912/2).

Aroona, north of Wilpena in the Flinders Ranges, was taken up as a lease for the first time in 1851 by the Browne brothers who offered J F Hayward a half share. The property was stocked with sheep driven up from Encounter Bay by Hayward. Aroona consisted of about 86 square miles of good salt bush country, or in another source rock-strewn mountains and porcupine grass. However there were good springs of water and a fairly reliable rainfall. Hayward sold Aroona to William Marchant in 1862. Aroona is now part of Oraparinna station.

The artist Hans Heysen became a frequent visitor to Aroona during the 1920s.
