Alpaca Magic, just North of Canberra, breeds quality alpacas, llamas and donkeys for sale at realistic prices. We provide Beginners Packages (with ongoing support); agistment for alpacas, llamas and donkeys, including complete management. Our stud males are available for outside services. We also provide "hands-on" workshops about alpacas, llamas, donkeys and other livestock as well as felting & spinning workshops using alpaca and llama fibre. We have our own alpaca fibre commercially processed into tops and knitting yarns in various colours. We are the largest Llama Stud in NSW. Visitors are welcome by appointment.

About Us

Alpaca Magic is 250 acres of prime rural land set in picturesque rolling hills, providing a tranquil and relaxing get-away from the city’s everyday grind and bustle. Just 20 minutes North of Canberra, access and parking is easy.

Our stud facilities are functional and well maintained. Stock laneways provide added convenience and paddocks are well fenced, sheltered and watered, and are mostly close to the homestead allowing easy visual supervision.

We are the largest llama stud in NSW and regularly test for JD (Johne’s Disease). We provide unlimited agistment (boarding) and complete management on a short or long term basis, as well as after sales service. Yes, we breed English/Irish donkeys too!

With over 30 years of livestock raising and management, we have at last found the livestock that most suits our investment, farming and emotional needs and is particularly well suited to the Southern Tablelands. These truly remarkable animals are a joy to own and a pleasure to handle. No doubt you are aware of the many management and tax benefits of owning alpacas and llamas. You don’t even need a farm to invest in alpacas and llamas – we can agist (board) and care for your investment for you!

We run a variety of Workshops at Alpaca Magic:

Husbandry - alpacas, llamas, donkeys, poultry, general livestock
Training - alpacas, llamas, donkeys
Fibre craft - felt making & spinning, using the craft workshops and classes using llama & alpaca fibre using Ertoel Roberta electronic spinning wheels
As well as a working stud farm, Alpaca Magic is a teaching facility. We are happy to share our knowledge and facilities with our clients. Our service is friendly yet professional. Alpaca Magic is a member of the Australian Alpaca Association, the Donkey All Breeds Society of Australia, the Affiliated Donkey Society of Australia and the Llama Association of Australia.
