Riveren and Inverway Stations are located in the Southern Victoria River District of the Northern Territory. Inverway was purchased in 1956 by Pat Underwood and Tom Quilty with the Underwoods subsequently buying out the Quilty share.  In 1968 John and Terry Underwood commenced the development of Riveren Station on the headwaters of the Victoria River.  Riveren was eventually subdivided from the Inverway lease in 1978.  A decade later Bunda Station was subdivided from the western portion of Inverway.  In 2007 John Terry and family purchased Inverway from the Westaway family.

In 2013 the Underwoods sold Riveren and Inverway Station to Japfa Santori Australia PL, a fully owned subsidiary of Indonesian company PT Santosa Agrindo. Michael and Georgia Underwood stayed on to manage the properties for the new owners.
