High Country Llama Tours
I was alerted to this tourism goldmine whilst watching TV tonight and I felt compelled to share this with our faithful readers. After a collective “WTF” from my friends sitting next to me and a round of roaring laughter, we composed ourselves and wondered what demographic would get excited by going on a llama tour?
Is there an underground llama tour movement that I’ve yet to hear about? Where was my invite?
‘High Country Llama Tours’ promises a “unique and mind settling break away in the bush land of Dargo, Victoria” by offering a troupe of trained Llamas who act as support guides for the guests and carry equipment. Some tours at the property allow you to handle and lead your very own llama, and dine with your llama over lunch “in a tranquil setting with nature”.
Tour packages include accommodation at the farm Homestead, include breakfast and of course provides guests with the legendary llama tour experience. Sounds very serene. And very odd.
I still haven’t found out if you can actually ride a llama or not so this may discourage some readers who are thinking of embarking on a tour of a lifetime.
The owner, Rob Burton, is heralded a ”llama whisperer”. The former metal industry worker and keen horseman, Burton’s ambition is to offer a “tourism experience with a difference”. I’m not one to disagree.
Prices start from $140. For more information: www.highcountryllamatours.com.au
