There’s oodles of cultural, historical, and impactful reasons to visit our fair nation’s capital, but none as important as visiting Alpaca Magic and petting donkeys for an hour and a half.

Pet donkeys with Canberra City YHA

Here’s some nice information for you. Donkeys come in multiple sizes – regular sized, miniature sized, and micro-sized (aka foals). Donkeys love to follow humans around, giving us playful and affectionate nudges along the way; all the while most probs nibbling at your clothes and extremities. And, there's a donkey-centric heaven where you can experience it all for yourself just a stones' throw from Canberra. 

I’m sold. Please take me now.

All of this is discoverable through a truly delightful visit to Alpaca Magic  (if you’re having a rough day just look at their Insta and all will be well in the world once again) – just a 20 minute drive from Canberra City YHA. Mark our words, Canberra will soon be rebranded to the Donkey capital of the country. And beyond.
