Situated west of the Stuart highway about halfway between Port Augusta and Woomera, Yudnapinna can trace its pastoral origins to mid nineteenth century. The property was established by Thomas McTurk Gibson and was one of the largest sheep stations in South Australia, with peak shearing of 100,000 sheep in the 1850s.

Purchased by McBride in 2016, the property is currently 224,293 ha and has a maximum stocking level of 29,000 sheep, although dry conditions since acquisition have meant that current stocking levels are closer to half of the maximum.

Yudnapinna has water supply sourced from 11 major dams, 6 wells and 3 bores and is connected throughout the property. The northern part of the property also has a connection to mains water from the Woomera pipeline.
