Royal View Alpacas is situated at the foothills of Middleton, 75kms South of Adelaide, on 40 acres with spectacular views of the ocean. Adjoined by Goolwa and Victor Harbor, the region is known as a tourism hotspot. White beaches, great surf in Summer and whale watching during Winter.
We have a small herd of 30 Alpacas, but are consistently purchasing alpacas to diversify and improve our genetics. We halter train all cria when they are weaned to ensure the easiest of handling & safety for both you and the alpaca.
If you are new to alpacas, we are happy to offer support and advice on all aspects of alpaca ownership.
With a small herd of alpacas, Royal View Alpacas have a small selection of animals for sale. Ranging from friendly, halter trained, show quality alpacas, stud males, pets and herd guards, all carrying good genetics.
Our alpacas are competitively priced, with older females (some with cria) and herd guards starting from $ 400.00 incl. GST. Our animals are all registered with the Australian Alpaca Association. Membership and transfer costs are the responsibility of the new owners.
Discounts apply for multiple purchases.

Young show quality males and females, females with cria at foot, mature females mated to our and outsourced stud males – our gate is always open and welcome you to inspect our alpacas to match your requirements of age, conformation and fleece quality.
If you are new to breeding alpacas, purchasing older, proven breeders – girls who have successfully delivered and raised cria, with no complications, are a great place to start.
We offer a fertility guarantee with all alpacas sold as breeding stock, a certification guarantee for all potential stud males and a live cria guarantee for all pregnant females.
Selecting an alpaca as a companion needs careful consideration. Not all alpacas enjoy human company – regardless of how often or how gently they are handled. Our alpacas are available for sale at the time of weaning – usually 5-6 months of age.
When they are weaned they can go through a stage when human company is well received. For the best selection we suggest visiting the farm early in our breeding season while they are still with mum – their cuteness means they don’t last long!
Alpacas thrive with other alpacas and will fret if kept alone. We started with 3 older females, 2 with cria at foot.
WEATHERS / HERD GUARDS
Adult castrated males are ideal livestock protectors for sheep, goats or even chickens. We currently have 2 guarding our sheep to protect them during the lambing season. They also make excellent lawnmowers for small acreage with the benefit of providing extra fleece for home spinners or sale.
