Thank you for your interest in attending Alpaca Magic for an International Intership/Volunteership.
Alpaca Magic is an Alpaca, Llama, Donkey & Miniature Cattle Stud Farm about 20km from Canberra. We often play host to students (especially vet students) & volunteers eager to learn about handling and management of livestock as well as fibre crafting. We are a tourist destination, host many events for the general public, and regularly take on vet students for their placements from universities throughout Eastern Australia. We enjoy sharing our skills with students and volunteers.
International interns & volunteers are invited to stay from a minimum of 2 weeks up to 2-3 months, depending on the time of year and skill level. Your accommodation will be a caravan with a close by bathroom, toilet, kitchen, laundry, relaxation area, etc. We will provide your food and do some of the cooking.
Spring and autumn are our busiest times as it is birthing season for our alpacas and llamas, the time of year that we mate them, and intensive training time for our babies. We would encourage you to apply to stay during these times.
Please email us the completed International Internship form (along with a copy of your CV/resume) with the subject line as “Internship [your name] [your preferred start date]”. If you forget, please just resend with that information in the subject line.
