Located near Parabardoo, Glenflorrie Station is owned & run by the Grey family (Peter, Susan, Murray, Adele & Aticia), running 2,500 of mostly Brahman breeders on 475,000 acres of rocky hills & spinifex flats with some washes with buffel grass scattered through.
Our mustering season stretches from May through to late September, with our crew being made up of 2 – 3 employees and family & friends who come up throughout the year to help out.

Horses, motorbikes, bull buggies, choppers & working dogs are all part of our mustering ensemble.
