We lived our farm tour. We learnt a lot about the history of these almost ancient animals (but surprisingly young industry in NZ and AUS) Not to mention the sweet, adorable alpacas themselves.

Worth a visit. The Alpacas are super cute. The place is a farm and a little rough, just like the owners.

The Alpaca Farm tour was very organized yet informal. We got to see many alpaca, feed them, walk them, stroke their necks and even give one a hug! I would highly recommend stopping here but be sure to book online first.More
