Our beautiful llamas are curious, interesting and calming characters and are bred for their temperament. They originate from Peru and Bolivia in South America, and are amongst the earliest of all domesticated animals. A member of the camelid family, llamas are a herd animal, but react very positively with people. Extremely versatile, they come in a wide variety of colours, sizes and personalities! A friendly companion, llamas are commonly used as pack animals in mountainous areas and for those who just enjoy hiking or
backpacking. Capable of carrying 1/3 of their body weight, llamas are a quiet and willing companion when hiking. With their two toed foot, llamas are agile and sure-footed. And, as a bonus feature, the soft pad on the bottom of their foot results in a low impact on the environment. Throughout the year on certain dates, we provide llama walks for the public.
The cost of a llama walk is $40 per person, this includes an afternoon tea in the garden following the walk. The walk itself takes around an hour to an hour and a half. We have groups of approximately 8-10 people, where each person has their own llama to lead through some of our 85 acres of bushland and rainforest. The walk itself is led by Ross and Diane, both very experienced llama handlers and you will learn a lot about llamas along the way! Another bonus of the walk is the spectacular views over the Dayboro Valley that you will see along the way. We ask that you wear long pants, tee shirt, closed in shoes (preferably hiking shoes) and a hat. We also recommend that you bring a water bottle.
