The auction of the iconic West Coast station ‘Currabie’ was held late last month. 

The historic Currabie station near Elliston has been in the Dinnison family name for five generations, since 1883.

Bronwyn Hull from Elders Real Estate Streaky Bay said it proved a good auction.

“There was a very good-sized audience with around 65 people attending to witness the sale of the property held at the Elliston Golf Club,” she said.

“There were eight registered bidders on the day, of which six were active.

“Strong meat and wool prices are causing greater interest and demand for grazing holdings.”

She said 12 prospective buyers toured the property prior to the sale.

The property, totalling almost 3400 hectares, has always been held in high regard as a lamb and ewe grazing block with little scrub and an extremely good quantity and quality of water, while these days it also has a bitumen road frontage.

The property was auctioned by Rob Stephens and was knocked down to the Rowe family of Cowell.

The Dinnison family said they wish them all the very best for the future.
