Landmark Broome 2017 Update

Landmark Broome was the very first sponsor of Central Station, back in 2014. Their continued support has been instrumental to the success of our grass-roots project. Here’s an update of what they have been up to in 2017 so far . . .

Landmark Broome – Fitzroy Crossing Depot

Landmark Broome has expanded its services to Kimberley customers with the opening of a depot in Fitzroy Crossing. The depot, based at the Dean Wilson Transport Yard on Forrest Street, stocks items include fencing equipment, poly pipe and fittings, Roundup, layer pellets, calf milk and a number of other frequently used goods. Landmark account holders can have goods placed on their account or they can be paid for with cash. The depot is another example of how Landmark Broome is striving to deliver the best service for its customers in the Kimberley and Pilbara.

If you would like to find out more information or wish to purchase any items from the depot, please contact the team at Landmark Broome on 9192 5722 or Dean Wilson Transport Depot (Fitzroy Crossing) on 0488 441 316.

KPCA Landmark Gala Dinner

Landmark continues to support the rural communities of the Pilbara and Kimberley. This includes sponsoring the recent KPCA Landmark Gala Dinner held in Onslow on 24th March. The sold-out show was the culminating event of the 2-day KPCA Field day and conference held on 23rd and 24th March at Minderoo Station and Onslow. Pastoralists and Industry representatives took the opportunity to frock up and enjoy a few beverages as the sun went down over the Pioneer portable tank Pub. It was a great opportunity for everyone involved to kick off their boots and let their hair down for a night of great food, dancing and a lot of laughs.

The larrikin bush poet Murray ‘Muz’ Hartin delighted guests with the delivery of his poems including ‘Turbulence’, and the ‘Rain from Nowhere’. Landmark Auctioneer Tiny Holly had the audience in stitches during a charity auction including 25 Irongate Wagyu Semen straws, a cruise on board the Great Escape and a Galwey Pearl, which raised a whopping $27,900 for the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

Kimberley Rural Ladies Lunch

Landmark Broome was proud to support the recent Kimberley Rural Ladies Lunch held at the Fitzroy River Lodge on Saturday 29th April. Over 80 women travelled from as far as Kununurra and Broome as well as many stations and communities in between, to attend the sold-out luncheon. The event brought together women from a variety of backgrounds to share stories with old friends and new. Inspiring guest speakers Mel McDonald (Rangelands NRM and Springvale Station), Jane Sale (Yougawalla Station and Central Station founder), and Felicity Brown (Hats by Felicity) shared their stories of coping in the face of adversity and choosing happiness always; post-traumatic stress disorder and the importance of looking after your mental wellbeing;  and following your dreams.

Event organisers Bron Cooke (Gogo Station), Jami Castle (Fitzroy Helicopters) and Nina Hardie (Fitzroy Helicopters) were overwhelmed by the huge response and have plans to make it bigger and better in 2018.

Event Organisers: Nina Hardie, Bron Cook, and Jami Castle.
