Glencairn Station (also referred to as the Cairn Station) has been proudly owned and operated by the Aubrey family since 1916 with a focus on producing super fine Merino wool to its contracted supplier and Angus cattle.
Easily accessed via a sealed road, the Station runs alongside the Ohau canal system and is situated on the Benmore Range with uninterrupted views of spectacular Mt Cook, with Lake Benmore to the east. Epitomising high country landscapes at its best, this property also has the enviable advantage of abundant, low cost irrigation supply to its flats ensuring plentiful feed during the dry summer months.
The Station’s tenure is Pastoral Lease with Otago University. The land was vested in the University of Otago as an endowment Ordinance 1870 (province of Otago), and is now administered as a Pastoral Lease under the Land Act 1948 by the Commissioner of Crown Lands on behalf of the University of Otago. The farm has recently had a rent review setting a new annual lease payment of $16,221.35.
Income is further supplemented by its renowned Camping Ground business which is located at Ohau C to which people flock to seeking the Kiwi family camping experience on the shores of Lake Benmore.
Glencairn Station is proud of its immense history. Its name is synonymous with the finest quality Merino wool and its pristine views. This is the type of property you only ever get one chance of owning with its premium fine wool history, its breath-taking views of Mt Cook from the homestead and the potential for further irrigation development and productivity.
Our Vendors have reluctantly made the decision to sell and are now seeking the next custodians to take over from their proud history.
