Mountview Alpaca Farm is situated in the heart of Lamington National Park (near Canungra), along the scenic winding road to O’Reilly’s Rainforest. It is nestled amongst 200 acres of lush rolling hills and provides a fantastic chance to stretch your legs on the way up to the O’Reilly’s bird feeding & walking tracks. Feeding the alpacas is a great experience and makes for some great photos!
If you are heading up to O’Reilly’s Rainforest for a day out with the kids to have a go at the free treetop walk or to see the waterfalls & hand feed the parrots, Mountview Alpaca Farm is a must see on the way up. It’s a perfect place to take a break and there is plenty of room for the kids to stretch their legs and we also serve drinks and ice-creams to keep everyone happy! Not only can they feed the alpacas, we also have two friendly Golden Retrievers, a cat who likes to hang out on the deck plus chickens wandering around the property. Then there is the Gift Shop with little souvenir ideas plus alpaca fur bears & alpaca toys.
The alpaca feeding has become one of the most favourite attractions at the farm and it only costs $3 for a bag of feed. Everyone loves to feed animals (young or old), and what better way to get up close & personal with alpacas! You can feed the alpacas six days per week (only closed on Tuesdays) and anytime within the opening hours (9am-3pm). Visitors at the farm have said its the “best $3 they have ever spent”! The alpacas are always hungry and willing to come up for a pat & a feed. They can get quite excited about the food and if you are extremely lucky you may even get spat on!
We have an exquisite alpaca gift shop with amazing alpaca products from both local producers and imported items from South America (the home of the Alpaca). So there is sure to be something for everyone from a handmade beanie from our own alpaca fleece to a collectable alpaca fur bear... we have it all! The range of alpaca wools will impress you, varying in colour & texture. There are locally dyed & woven alpaca/silk scarves & wraps, soft alpaca capes and sweaters, alpaca fur slippers, and so much more! We also stock locally made leather hats, hand painted tiles, soy candles and local crafts and souvenirs. And if that’s not enough, you can also enjoy great coffee & cake on our wonderful deck overlooking the view.
The alpaca gift shop also serves award winning coffee, teas, home made lamingtons and treats. There are cold drinks and ice creams also for the kids not to mention the hot chocolates! We have both undercover and outdoor seating areas & the deck overlooking the valley has views across to Mount Tamborine and the Gold Coast. We have the best views of the valley and stopping in just to see them is worth the trip!
We are located 25km along Lamington National Park Rd from the township of Canungra (11km before O'Reilly's Rainforest Retreat). Travel along Beaudesert-Nerang Road to the township of Canungra. Turn into Lamington National Park Road at the Canungra Motel (opposite the Outpost Cafe). Continue for 25km, past the O’Reilly’s Vineyard up the winding mountain road for approx 30mins and you will easily see the Alpaca Farm as the rainforest opens up into lush farming pockets at about 700 metres altitude. There is plenty of onsite parking.
