Alpaca

A bit about Alpacas

Alpacas are native to South America and were first imported into Australia from Chile in 1988. Alpacas are primarily bred for their fleece, which is silky and luxurious. Unlike sheep's wool, alpaca fleece doesn't have a coating of lanolin which makes it hypoallergenic.

There are two types of Alpaca: Suri and Huacaya. Suri Alpacas have fleece that grows in long ringlets, while Huacaya Alpacas have a coat which is shorter and denser.

Alpacas are social herd animals and prefer to be run in groups. They also make excellent guard animals for flocks of sheep - alpacas do an excellent job of protecting lambs from foxes.

Visit the Alpacas

The Alpaca Pavilion (Map Ref K4) opens from 9.00am to 5.00pm on Friday and Saturday and from 9.00am to 5.00pm on Sunday.
