Our Llama Tours
Whether you’d prefer a gentle stroll with a picnic lunch, taking in the scenic spots around Hanmer Springs village or you’re keen on experiencing all that the spectacular back country has to offer, our one day to multi day treks will have something to suit everyone. Our llama boys will carry everything for you so don’t let fitness or adequate gear and supplies concern you. Our friendly approach makes it possible for everyone.
The advantage of using llamas on your fishing trip is that they carry all the equipment and supplies leaving you hands free. Whether it’s a one day trip or a fully stocked camp, our llamas open up a world of possibilities! If you’re not as fit as you used to be or only have two arms, don’t go without that extra fishing gear, clothing or food…you can now access that fishing spot and save your energy for the fishing.

About Hanmer Llamas
Welcome, we’re Tony & Suzi Pearce, owner/operators of Hanmer Llamas. In the beginning Suzi wanted a pet llama and Tony didn’t. That is until he was introduced to a llama trainer and informed that the Incas used them for packing supplies and with Tony being the keen outdoors type that tweaked his interest. Over the years our knowledge, experience and love for these highly intelligent and gentle animals has grown; those Incas knew a thing or two. They’re ideally suited to environmentally sensitive areas making it a guiltless pleasure leading a llama buddy in our beautiful country.
