Llama Hire


Llama for a wedding, or a special event… Kindifarm even has a llama to rent!

Llamas are gentle and inquisitive animals. They are classified as livestock in Australia, thanks to Berry Carter who began llama farming as an agricultural industry in 1984.

Did you know…

  • The scientific name for llama is… Lama ‘glama’! Llamas live for 20-30 years.
  • A typical llama grows to 100cms tall at the wither (10h) and weighs between 130 and 200kgs. A baby llama is called a cria.
  • Llamas are a member of the camelid family, and are related to alpacas and camels. Llamas are bigger than alpacas and have longer ears. Just like camels, llamas can also survive for weeks without water because they collect moisture from the food that they eat. Llamas are intelligent and easy to train.
  • The first llamas in Australia were imported in the 1970’s and originated from Chile and Peru. They are used as pets, pack animals, carriage driving animals, guard animals, for wool, and even for meat in some countries. Like cattle and sheep, llamas chew their cud. Llama fibre is fireproof.
  • Llamas are very clean, and use the one dropping pile.  The droppings are small pellets that make great fertilizer for the garden.
    Spitting is normally used between llamas to divert annoying suitors or to establish pecking order at mealtime. Llamas will only spit at humans if they feel threatened by them.
