New England Local Area

The New England region is well renowned as being one of the top super fine wool growing areas of Australia and is ideally suited to Alpaca farming, with most of the area being located on the Northern Tablelands and the remaining locations on the North West Slopes and Plains. The alpacas thrive in this area and many growers produce high quality fleece.
The properties range from small lifestyle blocks to larger grazing properties to broad acre farms.
The New England breeder network is a very co-operative,supportive and has an active social group, members are always willing to offer any advice needed.
Home to the New England Alpaca Show at Uralla, held on the June long weekend. This show continues to grow with over 130 animals exhibited in the last few years with exhibitors travelling from other regions and is known for its friendly and relaxed atmosphere as well as healthy competition.




Mid North Coast Local Area


The Mid North Coast, which also includes the Taree and Forster areas are popular for tree & sea changers alike. The warm, temperate to sub tropical climate, is very attractive to many & the higher rainfall ensures year round green paddocks. Small acreages are available at reasonable prices in many areas & having a small herd of alpacas on your little piece of paradise is also becoming quite popular.

The local area encompasses the Belingen, Nambucca, Hastings & Manning Valleys. Both Suri & Huacaya are living in these areas quite well with spring being a popular time for shearing. The mid north coast hosts some of the best beaches, eateries & places of interest & the fishing is pretty good too.Alpacas are very inquisitive animals and can provide you with plenty of joy watching them interact with other species and yourself. The alpaca owners in the mid north coast have a well organised breeder network with plenty of events and get-togethers that add value to owning alpacas in the area, making the whole lifestyle a wonderfully pleasurable and satisfying venture.

Newcomers to the industry are always made welcome.


Central Coast & Hunter Local Area

The Central Coast & Hunter still hosts mainly small to medium acreages where people find a tranquil haven and a great spot to keep some alpacas.
With the Central Coast just over an hour's drive north of Sydney, you will find yourself in the perfect place for a short break or a longer escape, where wineries, beautiful gardens and splendid beaches are in plentiful supply.
The Hunter is also the home of Tocal agricultural college. This is a world of beautiful beaches and spectacular national parks. The Hunter Valley is north of Sydney and is most famous for its wine growing, particularly Shiraz and Semillon, and the associated tourism.
The Local Alpaca Breeders Network hosts many established breeders who are always willing to assist first time alpaca buyers as well as providing ongoing support.

Fun in the sun and oh so much more ... alpacas.
