While they were there for one day only, they were extremely popular with people of all ages.

The Bathurst Royal Show welcomed the alpacas on Sunday, with a fancy hat parade to mark the occasion.

One entrant travelled all the way from Tasmania to show of their alpacas, with plenty of entrants from the Central West as well.

Alpaca shed convener Jennie Menzies said there was some excellent alpacas on show.

“We’re here for the one day only and some people left as early as 3am to be here and they’ll go home this afternoon after the judging,” she said.

“They’re wonderful animals and there’s been some amazing alpacas on show.”
