- Operation of Caason Group companies
Aileron Pastoral Holdings (APH) is our Northern Territory livestock cattle station that we purchased in 2014/15. We operate over 408,000 hectares and this land holding positions us as one of Australia’s largest private land owners.

Located two hours north-east of Alice Springs and set on over 2,750 acres, the property has a lush growing history backed by impressive agriculture infrastructure and water assets.
