Animals galore
Get up close and personal with an amazing array of wildlife at the Denmark Animal Farm and Pentland Alpaca Stud. With a focus on hands-on interaction and an incredible range of creatures great and small, this is one farm not to miss.

Tucked in amongst properties on Scotsdale Road, Denmark Animal Farm and Pentland Alpaca Stud is a real treasure. Stroll with alpacas, pat koalas, chat to the galahs or marvel at the Scottish Highland cattle; there is plenty to do!

The farm currently has around 100 head of alpaca. There are also emus, bantam chicks, foxes, goats, a camel, ferrets, a pig, rabbits and guinea pigs.

Allow a couple of hours to wander around the farm. Koalas are fed at 10am while the bottle feeding of farm babies commences at 3pm. Alpacas breed all year so there is a good chance of seeing Cria (young alpaca). Other nursery animals may include calves, lambs, goats and piglets.

This small farm was created in 1990 by Marg and Laurie Binks and their daughter and son-in-law, Debbie and Stephen Maddams. Marg and Laurie have since retired and Steve and Debbie run the farm with the assistance of volunteers.

Denmark Animal Farm and Pentland Alpaca Stud is open daily, 10am to 4pm and a small packet of feed is included in the admission price.

A kiosk sells a selection of drinks and ice cream and guests are welcome to enjoy the shady picnic areas and gas barbeques.

The Craft Gallery has been wonderfully transformed from the original dairy. A large fishpond complete with greenery and a fountain now runs down the centre where the pit once was. Wind chimes, toys, woodcraft, t-shirts and jewellery line the shelves and the Craft Gallery showcases ceramics and arts by family member, Wendy Binks. Baskets of Alpaca fleece and yarn fill baskets in the Alpaca Boutique. If you're not up to sewing, garments from beanies to jumpers are available for purchase.
