The historic Beltana Station has sold to new South Australian owners, selling to a Far North pastoralist at $8.4 million.

The picturesque Flinders Ranges property was bought by Andrew Doman, owner of Yadlamalka sheep and cattle station near Port Augusta.

The 1541 square kilometre historic station, which has links to Sir Thomas Elder, was sold by the Ragless family.

It was first farmed by Elder's brother-in-law, Robert Barr Smith in 1857, with its name coming from an Aboriginal word meaning “running water”.

Beltana was used during filming of the movie Gallipoli in the 1980s and also featured in movies TracksThousand SkiesStealth and Rabbit Proof Fence.

With sweeping views of the Flinders Ranges, Beltana is 506 kilometres north of Adelaide.

The Ragless family bought the property in 2007 and added accommodation, a cafe and a restaurant.

It was sold by the Elders rural agency with an Angus cattle herd of 750, a Dorper sheep flock of 6000 and its historic 1860s homestead, cottage and shearing shed.
