Welcome to Nickelby at Darnum
Winter has hit with a vengence I think you would all agree and now is the time to snuggle up in some alpaca garments and throw rugs as well as scarves. Oh the list goes on.
Earlier in the year I travelled to Japan to study SAORI weaving for 11 days and just feel in love with the concept. It is weaving without restriction and no rules. So as you can imagine I am having such fun at my loom and creating some wonderful things. Some of them you will see in the shop on this website under Nickelby Designs but there are many more in the shop.
We are still doing our Ploughman's lunch platters and wine but with winter here our home made soups and coffee and cake are proving more popular so why not come and pay us a visit, the alpacas would love to see you too.
Every day there is always something going on so we are constantly updating our facebook page so please "Like" us on Facebook - www.facebook.com/nickelbyatdarnum to find out all the latest happenings.
Our online shop is now up and running and we are just putting a few things up, no where near all the products we have in store
We are located amongst the rural vistas of Darnum in Victoria Australia only 90 minutes East of Melbourne and a convenient 3km off the Princes highway.

Nickelby At Darnum is the home of Nickelby Alpacas, Nickelby Designs, Angelique's Country Garden Natural Body Products, and Nickelby Olives.
We are open to the public Wednesday - Sunday 10am - 5pm, and public holidays. Closed Christmas Day & Boxing Day and Good Friday. We welcome coaches and groups by appointment and can cater for morning and afternoon teas and lunches.
Not only can you come and learn about alpacas but you can purchase the magnificent clothing and homewear accessories that are produced by their lovely soft fleece. Warmer than sheep wool with no prickle factor, the jumpers, coats, hats and throw rugs are just sensational.
Our own design range, Nickelby Designs is growing and so is our yarn shop with our hand dyed 4ply yarns
Angelique's Country Garden Natural Body Products are made at Nickelby and we have natural ball soaps in flavours such as Gardener's, Nourish Me, Rosemary Lavender Orange & pink clay to name a couple. These come individually or beautifully boxed in wooden boxes made specifically for Angelique's. To compliment the soaps we have wonderful hand creams, body whips and body butters.
Nickelby At Darnum is certainly worth a visit when you are next in West Gippsland & Gippsland Gourmet Country.
