CHINA TO BECOME BIGGEST FOREIGN OWNER OF AUSTRALIAN FARMLAND- The Weekly Times , November 8, 2017 

China has leapfrogged the US and nearly displaced the UK on the landholding ladder. Chinese nationals or companies had some investment in 1.5 million hectares of Australian agricultural land, in 2015-16. That jumped to 14.4 million hectares in 2016-17, with the actual Chinese portion at 9.1 million hectares. The rise was largely due to the Australian Outback Beef joint venture between mining magnate Gina Rinehart and Chinese partner Shanghai Cred buying the 10 million hectare S Kidman & Co cattle empire.
