Shirley and Bill (William) Sullivan have occupied Leander station for close on 60 years. Bill's father also called Bill occupied Leander prior to this. Leander is an 18,000+ acre working sheep farm with some cattle. There is a homestead as well as an older disused homestead along with shearer's quarters and shearing shed.
Bill and Shirley have left Leander due to health reasons and the property will be sold and split between two neighbours and will no longer exist as a property in its own right from October/November 2011.
