Ambersun Alpacas is based at Mount Compass, 60 kilometres south of Adelaide, the capital city of South Australia. The farm is easy to locate, positioned on the main Adelaide to Victor Harbor Road (A13).
As they consider their good fortune, the area adjoins McLaren Vale, one of Australia’s best known wine producing areas. The region is also noted for tourism, being located within 20 kilometres of the seaside resort of Victor Harbour, which is blessed by beautiful white sanded beaches during the summer and renowned for whale watching during the colder months. Understandably, this region of the Fleurieu Peninsula is a popular tourist destination.
Alongside the alpacas, the Mt Compass farm is also regularly visited by Australian wildlife. Kangaroos and echidnas are often seen lazing around in the relaxed environment. The farm, of 234 acres, is also home to abundant birdlife, including the rare Southern Emu Wren. Many water birds, including swans, spoon bills, ibis and native ducks and water fowl take advantage of the beautiful 4.5 hectare lake on the property. A multitude of species of frogs serenade the evening air to provide for an idyllic setting.
Ambersun Alpacas has a selection of breeding females and males for sale that range in different colors, from “light fawn” to “rich brown”. The selection of alpacas changes in quality and price to suit both beginners and professional breeders.
Ambersun Alpacas has been highly successful in its show performance since 1995. They experienced their first taste of supremacy in 1995, when “Ambersun Remington”, a solid black male, won Supreme Champion in South Australia’s most prestigious show, the Royal Adelaide Show.
In a show career spanning over ten years, Ambersun Alpacas has won more than 126 Supreme Championships for alpacas and fleece, and over 985 Championship and Reserve Championship ribbons.
A large number of our alpacas are originated from the farm at Mount Compass in Australia.
