Members farm alpacas across many aspects of the Australian terrain – from the vineyards of the Yarra Valley and the Mornington Peninsula, to the rich soil farming districts of Gippsland, the coastal extension from Port Phillip to Mallacoota and the grandeur of the Great Dividing Range. Within the Victorian Eastern Region there are over 100 registered alpaca breeders, several with larger studs in excess of 100 alpacas to others with only a few.
