Pier Pier is a 31,603 hectare aggregate of five original property holdings.  It was bought by Paraway in 2011 and quickly became an invaluable asset.  The property engages in a mix of enterprises; including sheep, trade cattle and cropping.

Pier Pier Station runs Merino ewes joined to Boarder Leicester rams and trades cattle as the seasons allow, varying from 1,000 to 3,000 head.  2,983 hectares of arable land is cultivated each year to produce grain and fodder crops.

The country varies from heavy black to light red sandy soils and ranges from open country to light timber.  This varied terrain lends itself well to the assorted enterprises the station operates, with some areas being best suited to sheep while others are ideal cattle fattening country.

Pier Pier is made up collectively of five properties; Pier Pier and part of The Myalls on the eastern side of the station where the main homestead and single stationhand accommodation are located, Woorilla, 12 kilometres
away to the west where the Station Overseer lives, Dynong, another 20 kilometres to the west where a Senior Stationhand resides, and Eden on the western side of the station.
