    The Ponderosa was the fictional setting for Bonanza.

    Get off the CBS channel Dennis, it aint doin ye no good!

    You call the Ponderosa a station,,Anna creek is a real station (6,000,000 acres) 9,400sq miles,,As croc Dundee said,"now that's what you call a station".https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anna_Creek_Station  ""

    No because it was never a real working ranch. 


    1. The Ponderosa was the fictional setting for Bonanza. According to the premiere episode's storyline, it was a 600,000 acre (2,400 km²) ranch on the shores of Lake Tahoe, nestled high in the Sierra Nevada, with a large ranch house in the center of it


    2. The Ponderosa Ranch was a theme park based on the popular 1960s television western Bonanza which housed the affluent land, timber and livestock-rich Cartwright family. The amusement park operated in Incline Village, Nevada, near Lake Tahoe, from 1967 until 2004. Portions of the last five seasons of the TV series and three TV movies were also filmed at that location.

    It's totally fictional.I believe the biggest is "King Ranch" in Texas.

    And i was thinking of taking a holiday there,,,

    Anna Creek Station in the state of South Australia  is the world's largest working cattle ranch at 6,000,000 acres


    Bonanza ran 431 episodes over 14 seasons, NBC's longest running western and second to Gunsmoke. 


    Soooo, it was pretty darned big for something that was pretend!

    Aussies beat ya, no worries!
    UK isn't big enough, we're a wee financially rich nation, for some reason that I often wonder.

    Bob, I've always heard that the King Ranch is the biggest in Texas, I looked up Anna Creek Station which shows to be in Australia. Do I have my facts wrong?
    Bob/PKB

    I probably read this wrong. I'll edit and offer my apology.

    Hi guys,King Ranch is only 825,000 acres and is classed as ONE OF the biggest in the world,,Still a fair bit short of Anna Creek's 6,000,000 acres,and is 1,977,000 acres larger than it's nearest rival,Alexandria Station in the Northern Territory of Australia,,quite a parcel of dirt..>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<..http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-07-21/7-massively-sprawling-ranches-from-around-the-world
    hector5559

    Ben Cartwright would approve Bob,,
    Bob/PKB

    Hector, that is really all that matters
