“WARRAMUNGA” is an Aboriginal name meaning ‘meeting of the family.’

Warramunga Downs Alpaca Stud is situated at the Gateway to the Bellarine Peninsula near Geelong and is 75 minutes from the Melbourne CBD and Tullamarine International Airport.

Our first interest in alpacas began in 1993, after Ian was forced to retire due to a serious health condition. We looked for an interest and new lifestyle to accommodate this new challenge. In 1994, after looking at alpacas, attending shows, information days and farm visits, we purchased two females. (BLACK OF COURSE)

At Warramunga Downs, our aim is directed towards breeding stud quality black huacaya. We commenced our breeding program by using the first black genetics to come to Australia, by way of Jolimont Buster. Subsequent lines included, Noblaka Jack Flask, Inca Zulu, Kingston Park Paragon, Kingston Park Vulcan, Warramunga Downs Mc Guire and recently Samaria Valley Saladin and the Peruvian import Jolimont Rowan.

Over the past 15 years of our involvement in the alpaca industry, the improving success of our breeding program has been well reflected in the show ring; with impressive results from Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia & Tasmania.

Ian is a former Master Builder and interstate transport driver and now a committed black huacaya breeder, together with wife Carol. A past President of the AAA Victoria Eastern Region, Ian has also convened the Seymour Country Classic Alpaca Show 3 times in the past and co-convened the AAA National Show and Sale, Bendigo, 2005.
Carol has spent most of her working life, working in Aged Care Nursing Homes & Alexandra Hospital, Victoria. She now employs her expertise in the health & maintenance of our alpacas.
