Banyandah Alpacas welcomes local families and tourists to pet and feed the friendly alpacas between 10am and 4 pm on Wednesdays and weekends.. Bus/coach tours are welcome any day by prior arrangement. Hot water is provided for those tour groups wishing to bring their own refreshments, but Zesty Edibles at Gunabul Homestead, also in Power Road, provides lunches and teas in a tranquil setting if preferred. Dawn gives an interesting talk about alpacas to tour groups.
The on-farm retail shop stocks a wide range of products fashioned from alpaca fleece as well as unprocesed alpaca fleece, both suri and huacaya, tops and yarn made from Banyandah's alpacas for discerning crafters.
Banyandah Alpacas sells animals, breeding females, some with cria at foot, stud males, guardians, grasseaters and pets, all at competitive, realistic prices. Many of Banyandah's alpacas have been ribbon winners at shows.
Twice yearly Dawn conducts Alpaca Management Days for potential alpaca owners and new owners to assist them in the management and healthcare of their alpacas. Educational days can be individually designed for school groups.
Banyandah is a WWOOFer Host and welcomes WWOOFers from around the world to help with the management of the animals and the paddocks.
