The Victorian Eastern Region of the Australian Alpaca Association Ltd (VER) represents alpaca breeders situated in the eastern Victorian region of Australia.

The association caters to alpaca breeders in locations including the Yarra Valley vineyards and Mornington Peninsula through to the Gippsland district and coastal regions between Port Phillip and Mallacoota. 

Approximately 300 alpaca breeders are represented by the association. Some breeders are the proud owners of studs with over 400 alpacas, while others breed only a small number.

Members are primarily involved in the breeding of suri and huacaya alpaca breeds.

The association provides alpaca breeders and individuals interested in the alpaca breeding industry with a vast range of valuable resources.

These include:

  • Details about upcoming events, including agricultural shows, seminars and workshops
  • In depth articles covering all aspects of the alpaca breeding industry
  • Information regarding alpaca health and nutrition
  • Member details, which allow alpaca breeders to locate other breeders and/or alpaca owners

The association features a Committee, which is comprised of eight individuals, including a president and vice-president.

The Committee is dedicated to the continued growth and development of the alpaca breeding industry, and as such its members provide those interested in entering the alpaca breeding industry with a wealth of information and continued support.

The association holds the V.E.R Spectacular, an annual event designed to recognise alpaca breeders and the high quality alpacas they produce.

Award categories include:

  • Champion Huacaya Fleece
  • Champion Suri Fleece
  • Champion Huacaya
  • Champion Suri
