Land Resources of Auvergne Station A supplement to the Land Resources of the Victoria River District i Executive Summary This report for Auvergne Station is a supplement to Land Resources of the Victoria River District (2012) and completes the land resource assessment of the district which covers 24 properties and approximately 78 760 km of pastoral land. Land unit mapping at 1:100 000 describes the landforms, soils and vegetation in the district. Valuable pastoral land on Auvergne in total accounts for 60% of the property. The most pastorally productive landscapes are the alluvial plains that run from north to south in the Auvergne valley and account for almost a third of property (28%). Moderate and fair pastoral land located on relatively flat colluvial plains on red and brown earths covers a similar extent at 31% of the area. Land with high ecological and conservation values flank the productive landscapes. These include the majestic Pinkerton Range on the west, the rugged sandstone terrain extending from Judbarra National Park on the south and the iconic Victoria River, East and West Baines rivers and the small wetlands dispersed throughout. These landscapes account for 24% of the property. For the first time across a pastoral lease in the Northern Territory, this survey generated an erodibility factor (K) for all soils and in combination with a range of external factors such as landscape position and grazing pressure, produced erosion risk mapping for all landscapes.
