11 October Sue Neales The Australian

It is part of Australia’s bush folklore that when the helicopter carrying Chinese magnate Xingfa Ma touched down last year on a muddy Gulf of Carpentaria beach — so Ma could announce he ­wanted to buy surrounding Wollogorang Station for $47 million — the billionaire had never before visited the remote region.
