Alpaca Passion

A family-owned business, Alpaca Passion has been at home in Daylesford for over 10 years. With a vast range of stylish alpaca garments and cosy homewares selected from the best alpaca fashion suppliers in the world, Alpaca Passion is a shopping destination, and a must-visit on your next trip to the Daylesford and Macedon Ranges area.

Co-founders Keith and Liz began their passion for alpaca 15 years ago with the purchase of a small herd. At the time, not much was known about these captivating animals, or the luxurious fleece they produced. Nowadays, alpaca wool is a highly sought after natural fibre and Alpaca Passion is the premier alpaca fashion boutique dedicated to showcasing what the ancient Incas called “the fibre of the gods”.

Wombat Forest Vineyard

Our family owned vineyard established in 1997 is nestled on the edge of the Wombat State Forest with its rich diversity of bird and animal life all of whom are partial to grapes. An elevation of 600 metres, abundant natural springs and rich volcanic soil, all combine to create a unique niche for viticulture and wombats. Our wine displays classic, cool climate characteristics derived from an extended ripening period. Our grapes are hand pruned and picked and our reds are matured in French Oak. We have a cosy tasting room and courtyard with extensive views of the Wombat Forest. We pride ourselves on using environmentally friendly practices.

Australasian Mine No.2

A quiet place, where little remains today above ground to indicate the industry, wealth and tragedy that unfolded here at the site of the ‘new’ No. 2 mine shaft.

The New Australasian Gold Mining Company, number two shaft disaster claimed the lives of 22 miners and remains as Australia’s worst gold mining disaster. The poppet head and boilers have long gone and the depression of the No.2 shaft can be seen beside the mullock heap. Unseen above ground, there are several kilometres of tunnels beneath you. The tragic site is marked by a cairn and oak trees.
