Gina Rinehart's Hancock Prospecting has added another Northern Territory cattle station.

The 171,000 hectare Willeroo Station comes with around 20,000 head of Brahman cattle.

It adjoins Aroona Station, which was bought by Hancock Prospecting in March.

Great Giant Livestock (GGL), one of Indonesia's largest feedlot operators, sold the property.

Rinehart said she was interested in Willeroo Station because "we believe we can add improvements and value to the station, where we will copy what we have introduced successfully on our other Hancock stations, and are currently rolling out across Kidman properties also".

"Willeroo will well complement our existing investments in the north," she said.

"It is adjacent to Aroona Station which we acquired earlier this year allowing us to operate the two stations as a combined unit.

"Also being near to the Phoenix Park export depot it will assist part of the wet season growing program for Riveren and Inverway as well as help to provide better market timing opportunities for some of Hancock Beef's Kimberley cattle stations."
