ABYDOS STATION is situated in the spinifex country some 90 miles inland from Port Hedland and is one of several stations in the area which were abandoned about 15 years ago, following upon a marked decline in their sheep-carrying capacity extending over a number of years. Abydos and the adjoining station, Woodstock, were purchased by the West Australian Government in 1946 as a site for research into local pastoral problems.
