Description

You don’t want to miss out on the 'hands on' adventure at Llama Farma. A real working farm that you can participate in caring for and meeting the animals face to face, no cages or bars between you.

Llama walking in beautiful Tasmanian bush is a unique experience to make your holiday special.

Fun entertainment for the whole family.

Our farm is set up for the unique husbandry requirements of our wonderful animals. With their dietary preference for forage rather than green grasses Llama are able to withstand dry conditions for longer than most livestock, luckily not always necessary in our lush Tasmanian pastures but having a minimal effect on our environment is a positive aspect of their care.

During our walks we are pleased to note that the Llamas soft feet cause minimal soil disruption and ecosystem disturbance, far less than horses or Australia’s other traditional livestock.

We aim to leave our environment as we find it…we follow the Leave no Trace philosophy.p> So they really are you best hiking partner, whether you just need a helping hand over unsteady terrain or a friend to help with your bags.

A large part of our farm is given over to the conservancy of the Black gum (Eucalyptus Ovata), this beautiful part of our heritage is critically endangered. We’re very lucky to be able to protect a naturally occurring large stand of these trees within a conservation area on our property. This conservancy is also home to varying Australian wild life. Everyone from echidna to wombats and barred bandicoots call this area Home. The Black Gum is a vitally important part of the life cycle of the far travelled and also critically endangered Swift Parrot.
