Tastefully renovated farm cottage located at Black Mountain, New England region NSW, close to Armidale on Australia's highest alpaca farm at 1360m. Experience the fresh mountain air and stunning natural environment during any season of the year. Located about half-way between Sydney and Brisbane, El Prado Alpacas Farmstay is the perfect location to take a break in the drive between the 2 cities. It is also just a short distance from the highest city in Australia, Armidale.
This farmstay B & B is unique in that it is in the centre of the highest working alpaca farm in Australia. It is the epitome of peacefullness where guests can relax in solitude, or partake in the elevated rural environment.
Guests have access to the entire cottage, apart from my farm manager's bedroom (no4) which is separate from the guest quarters. Guests are also welcome to interact with the alpacas when accompanied in the paddocks and laneways by either Paul Donoghoe, or myself or Deanne. The rooms are well insulated and guests have their own private bathroom.

I am a semi-retired doctor who specializes in the treatment of vein disease and cosmetic medicine. I have a research interest in the vascular aspects of multiple sclerosis and chronic diseases associated with persistent chlamydophila pneumoniae infection. With my wife Deanne we breed and manage a herd of alpacas on one of the most beautiful mountains in Northern NSW. The weather here is relatively cool all year round, ideal for both us and the alpacas.The Farmstay is managed by a friend Paul Donoghoe who has wealth of knowledge and is available to assist you during you stay. The mountain has an innate tranquility.
