About our region

About our region

From Toowoomba in the south-east to the Atherton Tablelands in the north, the Queensland region encompasses properties from smaller acreages along the coastal strip to larger properties further inland. Within this region there is a large range of acreages, soil and pastrue types, but with geographaicall widespread membrship, new entrants to the alpaca industry will always be able to gain local knowlegde on breding alpacas under specific conditions.

The region actively promotes the alpaca industry throughout the state with shows, educational workshops and seminars, promotional displays as well as providing valuable support to our members. A motivated regional committee and an enthusiastic membership cooperate in field days, workshoips, shows and social activities.

The Australian Alpaca industry has, over the last thirty years or so, developed pedigree bloodlines the equal of any worldwide. Surprisingly much of this success has been achieved by relatively small breeders in what, compared with sheep or cattle, is a young industry.
