Victorian Eastern Region of the Australian Alpaca Association Ltd.


The Victorian Eastern Region (VER) represents over 160 registered alpaca breeders and owners located in the east of Victoria. More information at the bottom of this page. 


Victorian Eastern Region

The Victorian Eastern Region covers a geographically diverse area. 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 160 registered alpaca breeders, several with larger studs in excess of 100 alpacas to others with only a few. Many members also promote and sell alpaca products.
