History : Mount Derrimut Station, Deer Park, became a cattle run in 1850, and after changes of ownership and occupation was sold to I.C.I.A.N.Z. Ltd. in 1950. In 1962 the Directors and the University agreed that the 800 acres be leased to the University for use by the School of Agriculture. Second Year candidates were required to go into residence at Mount Derrimut for lectures, demonstrations and practical work.
