Whats up with Rising Sun

Rising Sun

I’m a bit of celebrity around the farm and on social media. My fleece is super soft and luxurious, but even more than that, I’m apparently a one-of-a-kind, perfect specimen of an alpaca! I’m also as lovable as I am handsome, so pop into Shamarra Alpacas for a tour and a pat.

Whats up with Harlequin


A glamorous damsel through and through, I’m a big fan of being groomed well ahead of a photo op (your next selfie on a farm tour). My big eyes look even better when my fleece is on fleek. And I’ve been known to wear the odd denim jacket or hat, depending on the season.

But don’t be intimidated by my flair for fashion; I’m always up for a solid cuddle like my other friends.

Whats up with Tornado


I absolutely adore wee human kiddos and alpaca babies alike! Arguably the friendliest of all the furry faces here at Shamarra, I like to get visits and snuggles year-round.

Our prices for this level of cute are always competitive, but we have a fantastic deal for a family of four below, and we’re always adding interesting combos with other local tour operators!

Awesome experience being able to sit down and have alpaca cuddles in the paddock and even hand feed them!! 10/10 would reccomend to anyone 😁”

  • “Even though it’s only an hour, you get maximum quality time with the alpacas. The staff are friendly and can’t wait to share their knowledge with you. Cuddling takes timing and patience, but when you finally get to hug one of these fluffy guys, it’s the best feeling. Would go again.”

  • “This was a very memorable experience we had. The farm offers fun tours where you can get close-up with their friendly and fluffy alpacas, you can cuddle them, feed them and take beautiful photos and videos. Moreover one of the most unique places because of the amazing breathtaking views of Banks Peninsula, enjoying the beautiful scenery and fresh air, is a truly unique experience you won't forget.”
