Mangowood farm Alpacas is owned and operated by Barb Ransby and Bruce Porter.
After visiting the Alpaca Display at Primex Casino, we were impressed by the gentle nature of the alpacas and the softness of the fleece, this meeting commenced our research into everything Alpaca.
In April 2006 we purchased our first black female Suri Alpacas, while adding alpacas with varied bloodlines when required. We have a few Huacaya Alpacas, their fleeces are ideal for spinning and felting.
We are members of the Australian Alpaca Association Ltd, our region is South Queensland and Northern NSW, we are also members of the Australasian Alpaca Breeders Association.
Mangowood Farm Alpacas, at Lillian Rock, is situated between Kyogle and Murwillumbah in the Richmond Catchment area of the Northern Rivers Region of New South Wales.
Lillian Rock has the best of both worlds, rural living but within 20 minutes travelling time to Kyogle, 40 minutes to Lismore or Murwillumbah and an hour to Tweed Heads and the Gold Coast Airport, and 2 hours to Brisbane and the International Airport.
The Border Ranges National Park, a world Heritage listed rainforest Park, on the rim of the ancient volcano is but a 10 minute drive away. The Pinacle Lookout offers views of Mt. Warning, the escarpment and the coast line.
