Denmark Animal Farm & Pentland Alpaca Stud
A hands-on animal farm and wildlife park where visitors can feed, pat and get up close to lots of friendly and interesting animals.
Open Daily 10am to 4pm.
Koalas Fed at 10am. Bottle Feeding at 3pm.
The farm is designed to be as interactive as possible, giving visitors a special opportunity to really connect with the animals.
Enjoy nursing a rabbit or newborn lamb, cuddling a kangaroo joey, patting a koala, hand feeding and stroking an alpaca – children and adults alike will just love getting up close to the animals.
There is “Tyson” a huge North American Bison, hairy Scottish Highland cows (and calves) and lots of other animals including ferrets, foxes, rabbits, guinea pigs, chickens, goats, sheep, Asian buffalo, llamas, horse, camel, donkeys, pig, emus, aviary birds and more.
The koalas are fed at 10am, which is the best time to catch them awake and bottle feeding of the farm babies is at 3pm daily. Depending on what arrivals we have throughout the year, the bottle fed babies include calves (including Scottish Highlands), lambs, kid goats, piglets and joeys.
Pentland Alpaca Stud imported the first alpacas into Western Australia in 1990, and have been breeding and showing alpacas ever since. A family business that was started by Laurie and Margaret Binks on what was originally a dairy farm. It is now owned and operated by their daughter Debbie and her husband Steve Maddams.
The large craft gallery at the farm is located in the former herring-bone dairy, with the dairy “pit” now a feature fish pond. There is a huge range of alpaca clothing in stock all year round including jumpers, jackets, capes, ponchos, scarves, beanies, and gloves. Plus the ever popular fluffy alpaca teddy bears, blankets, raw fleece and 8ply yarn.
Debbie’s sister, Wendy Binks, is a well-known Western Australian artist and author. The craft gallery boasts a huge selection of Wendy’s original paintings, ceramics, prints, mugs, magnets and more.
Wendy is the writer and illustrator of popular childrens book “Where’s Stripey”, winner of the WA Premier’s book award. Her second book “Scrambled Egg” was also shortlisted for this prestigious award. These books along with “Stripey” soft toys and an activity book are also available at the farms craft gallery.
Other items in the gallery include soft toys, puzzles, jewellery, local souvenirs, Denmark’s famous “Door Harps”, Santalia products and more.
There is also a special shelf in the craft gallery dedicated to fundraising for the Bali orphans and Eran Svigos clinic in Mengwi, Bali. Most of the items have been made by Bali children, such as wrist bands and book marks. 100% of proceeds from these sales go directly to the orphanage and clinic for important medical supplies. Go to their website to see what a worthwhile cause this is: www.balikids.org
