Welcome to the NSW Alpaca Region

Welcome to the website of NSW Alpaca Region, Australian Alpaca Association Ltd.

The NSW is a vibrant and exciting region with over 500 registered alpaca breeders across the state.  

Both huacaya and suri alpacas are farmed across NSW. Our Region’s alpaca producers range from some of Australia’s largest studs running hundreds of alpacas on commercial grazing properties, through smaller boutique studs producing elite fibre and genetics as well as hobby farms with just a few alpacas.

Our region hosts a vibrant calendar of events including some of Australia’s largest and most exciting alpaca shows with in excess of 200 entries. These include the Alpaca Show at the Sydney Royal Easter Show, the Carousel of Colour held at Goulburn in May, the Winter Wonderland held in Mudgee in August and the Charles Ledger Show at Moss Vale in September. The Ledger is named after Charles Ledger who landed the first alpacas imported into New South Wales in the Domain in Sydney in 1859.

Across the Region members also facilitate regular educational opportunities on alpaca husbandry, fleece harvesting and preparation and other aspects of alpaca industry development. We work together to facilitate fibre collection points and assist alpaca growers to interlot fleece into larger consignments for fleece buyers.  

We are enthusiastic and friendly people who are committed to the continued development of the Australian alpaca industry.  We welcome your enquiries about alpacas and the Australian alpaca industry. For more information contact our members listed in the Breeders Directory.

Australian Alpaca Association Promotional Video

A video for the Australian alpaca industry was launched at the November 2015 National Show and Sale in Sydney.

The video promotes the whole Australian alpaca industry as a maturing niche agribusiness opportunity with a history of more than 25 years in this country. The purpose is to inform and inspire a broad range of stakeholders including consumers, farmers and potential alpaca farmers, confirming that we have an industry producing elite genetics, quality assured Australian alpaca fleece, premium meat and a range of luxury consumer goods.
