Alpacas are a progressive and established primary industry suited to Australia’s fragile environment and is an agricultural pursuit suitable for all ages and investment strategies.
The South Queensland Northern NSW Region of the Australian Alpaca Association is the only one to span two states. We have members across the Brisbane and Gold Coast area, further west near Toowoomba and Texas, and throughout coastal and inland Northern NSW south to Coffs Harbour. The South Queensland Northern NSW region promotes and supports our members by keeping them informed and up to date with this exciting industry. We have an enthusiastic membership and share our knowledge and skills at field days, workshops, shows and social activities.
In recognition of services to the alpaca industry by the late Dr Richard Dixon, the AAA offers a scholarship to senior veterinary students. The development scholarship honours the late Richard Dixon who is widely recognised for his vision and commitment to improving alpaca health and for establishing so many of the founding veterinary practices in Australian alpaca industry including Q-Alpaca.
