The Victorian Eastern Region (VER) represents over 140 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 140 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.

Victorian Alpaca Youth

The Victorian Alpaca Youth Training and Education Committee would like to thank you for your continued support of youth activities within the alpaca and agricultural sectors in Victoria! Since 2017, more events have been added to our portfolio, while our work with Paraders competitions, youth camps and workshops have been recognised as the Gold Standard of Youth work within alpacas Nation-wide! This has led to exciting times within the alpaca industry and is hoped to lead to growth, not only of the Victorian Alpaca Youth Group (VAY), but of youth groups across Australia.
