Thinking about supporting and possibly exhibiting a rare breed?

Help support some of the rare breeds left in Australia! There are breeds left in Australia that are on the verge of extinction if they dont have your help!

There are many wonderful breeds of rabbits other than Mini Lops, Dwarf Lops etc, that make wonderful companions and they can be a breed that you, as a fancier, can help to have an impact on in the Australian rabbit fancy.
Why not research some of those amazing breeds.
Many breeds can be obtained across Australia such as the Smoke Pearl, English Spot, Silver Fox, Chinchilla etc.
If your interested, come along to one of our club shows and we are more than willing to refer you to someone who breeds/exhibits these rare beauties!
