History of the Residence - The Inverell Station Manager Residence was built and occupied by the districts first settler, Alexander Campbell. Alexander Campbell first migrated to Australia in 1825 as one of five overseers for Peter Macintyre, of Blairmore, Aberdeen, on the Hunter River. Macintyre was by this time a very wealthy grazier, and after receiving first-hand information on the Inverell region from his friend, Allan Cunningham, who had explored the area in 1827 and praised its ‘beautiful sward of grass’, the wily Scotsman looked to occupying the land before it was appropriated by someone else. In 1835, he despatched Campbell to examine the unexplored country of New England. Campbell first claimed a large tract of land for Macintyre at Guyra, then proceeded west to the present site of Bundarra. While camped on the Gwydir River, he was informed by local Aborigines of a ‘Cawbawn Kallie’, or great river, further north. This confirmed Cunningham’s account, and thus encouraged, Campbell set out with his party shortly thereafter. The extensive plains and lush pastures they found there induced Campbell to immediately mark out the boundaries of a cattle station for Peter Macintyre, which he named Byron Plains. Campbell then returned to Blairmore, where he married Catherine Macintyre (no relation of Peter Macintyre) and continued to administer Macintyre’s Hunter Valley property. When in 1842 Peter Macintyre died, his sister, Mary, inherited Byron Plains and placed it under the care of Campbell. While there he established his own station directly east of Byron Plains which he called Inverell Station.
