WELCOME to the world of Aberfeldy Alpacas.

Our stud, Aberfeldy Alpacas, is located on a 200 acre property in picturesque Googong, just 10 km south of Queanbeyan, and a short 30 minute drive from the centre of Canberra.

We have 20 years experience with the alpaca industry, having been active members of the Australian Alpaca Association (AAA Ltd) since 1999.  We bought our first breeding alpacas    -   a three-in-one package  -   in 2004 and have never looked backi. 

Aberfeldy comprises predominantly native pastures, on which the alpacas thrive.  We run a mix of coloured animals, predominantly light to dark fawns, as well as white alpacas.  Our herd usually numbers around 50 animals at any one time.

From the start our focus has been on breeding high quality animals with robust constitution, and dense, fine fleece.  We strive to obtain the best stud sires and finest genetics in Australia. Our primary aim is continuing improvement in the fleece characteristics of our herd.  

Our goal is to run a herd of animals which produce a fleece clip of superb quality  -  with heavy fleeced animals of uniformly fine micron within the staple and across the entire fleece. While to date our herd has included a signficant proportion of coloured animals, we are now transitionig to a predominantly white herd for the commercial benefits of a white clip.

We offer a range of animals for sale that would suit new breeders, as well as those who are seeking a quiet pet or herd guards for sheep and goats. For those entering the alpaca industry for breeding purposes, we can put together starter packages to suit a range of budgets and breeding objectives.

We are always happy to provide advice on buying alpacas and all aspects of alpaca husbandry.  If required, we are happy to provide follow up services, including assistance with vaccinations, etc.

We have been active members of the Australian Alpaca Association since 1999 and encourage membership of this association to all our purchasers as a means of keeping informed on all matters alpaca.

Visits to Aberfeldy to inspect our animals are very welcome by appointment.
