Auvergne Station

Auvergne Station

Taken up in 1886 and purchased before the turn of the century by the legendary pastoralists, the Durack family, Auvergne Station pioneered the live export market in the early 1900's, supplying cattle to the Philippines ex-Wyndham.

Today, 4,142 sq km Auvergne Station fulfils the same role, breeding steers that leave the property at six months for backgrounding at Argyle Downs before being shipped to South-East Asia.

Comprising 50 per cent forest country and 30 per cent open black soils with the remainder being coastal flood plains and red loam river country, native Flinders and Mitchell grasses thrive under Auvergne's 600 mm annual rainfall.

Capable of running 32,000 cattle, this valuable east Kimberley block turns off 10,000 head a year.

The 'Boab Gate' welcomes you to Auvergne. 




Glen Brooker & Lisa Walker
Auvergne Manager
Joined CPC in

Glen Brooker and his partner, Lisa Walker, took on the management of Auvergne Station in December 2014. Glen joined CPC in 2008 as Overseer of Isis Downs. In 2011 he transferred to Kirkimbie, where he spent a couple of years before being promoted to Manager of Isis Downs in 2013.

Glen finished school in 1993 and worked for Stanbroke Pastoral Company over a ten year period, progressing from Jackaroo through to Head Stockman whilst working on several Queensland stations and a feedlot at Chinchilla. A 12 month stint as a truck driver followed, then three years in the Gulf as a Head Stockman before joining CPC.

Lisa came to Australia in 2010 and travelled the country for a few months before pursuing work on Isis Downs as a Station Cook. Lisa transferred to Kirkimbie with Glen in 2013, then took on the role of Secretary at Isis Downs when the couple returned in 2013. 

Glen and Lisa then spent a year pursuing other adventures before returning to CPC in 2014 to start their family.
