Clunie Range is owned and operated by the Guest Family, Hugh, Hazel, Brett and Kim. Originally based on the QLD border between Killarney and Woodenbong, the stud was named after Mount Clunie – a spur of the great divide.
The Guest Family have been breeding Angus cattle for over 60 years and Hazel’s Grandfather Henry Standing bought some of the very first Angus cattle into the Clarence Valley after purchasing them from the White Family in the New England. Hugh Guest and his parents started breeding Angus cattle after retiring from dairying in the late 50’s and annually presented some of the most highly sort after weaners at the Annual Casino weaner sales until 1994 when the operation was relocated to Coolatai between Goondiwindi, Moree and Inverell in North West NSW. Morgan and Rohan Guest represent the fifth generation of Angus breeders in the Guest Family.
The Clunie Range Angus Stud commenced in 1986 when Hugh Mulcahy gave us our pick of five heifers from his entire F drop of females which allowed the stud to start with a high-quality base. Early sires were used from Naranghi, Boorahman, Tieyon Park and Farrer.
In 2020 we operate three properties in the Coolatai district and one property based at Taroom in Central Queensland.
