Marks love of llamas began with the adoption of a 1 day old cria “Yoda”. Mark then purchased “Chewy” as a friend for Yoda. Yoda unfortunately passed away at 9 months old due to a heart problem so Chewy was left by himself. Mark then purchased “Jar Jar” and “Sequoia” as friends for Chewy. There are now 16 llamas on the farm with more inevitably to follow.
As a hobby, Mark began conditioning some llamas for packing and trekking. It has subsequently developed into a successful business that attracts visitors who are both locals and from around the world.
Mark has 5 years experience packing and trekking thru the Australian bush. His favorite trekking destinations include The Wombat State Forrest and areas around Bendigo.
The locals around Woodend are familiar with Mark and his llamas around town. They can be seen frequenting the cafes for some morning tea or lunch. Nothing stops people like a llama walking down the street, but Mark is always open for a chat and a llama pat.
As a past President of both the Llama Association of Australasia and its Victorian Branch, there is a wealth of experience and knowledge to be gained on one of our llama experiences.
Mark has a current Working With Children Certificate and is fully Insured.
