Tasmanian Australian Alpaca Association Ltd, a division of the Australian Alpaca Association Limited, caters specifically to alpaca breeders in the state of Tasmania.

The association aims to promote the alpaca breeding industry in Tasmania, and works in the interests of its members, most of whom are alpaca breeders or those interested in the alpaca breeding industry in the region.

Tasmania is renowned for its cool temperatures and luscious, green pastures. These unique environmental conditions facilitate the eco-friendly breeding of alpacas with superior quality fleeces that are highly sought after.

The association produces Spitting Image Newsletter for its members, which is published on a quarterly basis, typically at the end of each season.

The newsletter features information regarding event results and upcoming events, topics relevant to the alpaca breeding industry on both a regional and national level, stud listings, alpacas for sale and so forth.

The association provides alpaca breeders with the opportunity to network with one another, and operates as a platform for discussion of those issues affecting and/or relevant to the alpaca breeding industry.  

As such, alpaca breeders are encouraged to showcase their alpacas at agricultural shows and fairs throughout Tasmania as these allow for alpaca breeders to meet with one another and promote their products to buyers.

Agricultural shows include Agfest, Hamilton, Bream Creek, Campbell Town and Brighton.

Fairs include Derwent Valley Autumn Festival, A Taste of the Huon, Rotary Craft Fair, Bothwell Spin-In and Tasmanian Craft Fair.

The association is comprised of a Committee, which features seven individuals including a president, who work tirelessly for the benefit of alpaca breeders in Tasmania.
