Parrot Garden

Welcome to Parrot Garden Sanctuary!

Parrot Garden is located in Crystal Creek, Northern NSW, Australia - a beautiful little hamlet set in the hills between Murwillumbah and Chillingham, 40 min from the Gold Coast and 10 min from Murwillumbah.

We plan to open soon for the public to educate students of all ages about wildlife conservation, environmental sustainability & animal welfare. Visitors are welcome to support local & international wildlife and animal rescue projects.

The Parrot Garden team is a group of volunteers, who are zookeepers & wildlife carers and students.

Our volunteers are passionate about conservation and working around-the-clock to care for native, exotic and farm animals. Parrot Garden's mission is to establish a sanctuary for birds, reptiles, amphibians and mammals.

But we have a passion for rescue farm animals too.

Enjoy your day with us and you fall in love with our amazing animals!

Dear Locals & Tourists!

Relax with a cuppa amidst this tropical setting surrounded by parrots such as Ekki, the Eclectus Parrot who talks like a news reporter, Inki, the phone imitating Yellow Crowned Amazon, Quakers, Cockatiels, a Major Mitchel & Sulphur Crested Cockatoo ... plus other animals in our petting zoo: rabbits, guinea pigs, ducks, ponies, alpacas, a cow, goats and friendly miniature donkeys.

At Parrot Garden the number of rescue animals is growing and we are prepared to create a safe sanctuary for all types of creatures. With the help of volunteers we are building new habitats and one of our new projects will be a pond to create a heaven for native frogs and birds. Besides this we plan to build a big free flight for birds.

Our Animals love the attention, but should be treated with respect and affection.
