Queueing in the lane

Welcome to Kallaroo Alpaca. On show will be mothers and their babies, called crias. Kids, you can lead our favorite boy “Comet”. He is very quiet and loves cuddles. Enjoy a sausage sandwich while Mum and Dad can have a coffee and yummy slices.

Feel the difference in different fleeces and colours and pick out a yarn for mum to knit you a jumper.

Tucker time

Learn about looking after alpacas at your place and the things you have to do to keep them healthy and happy.

Watch ladies spin the fleece to make a large range of garments, which will be for sale.

I also have Guinea fowls to keep the ticks away from your paddocks.

My husband and I have only had these terrific animals for 5 years and it is fun to learn, breed and experience the whole alpacas industry.
