Urliup Wildlife Sanctuary, is our privately owned sanctuary located in the Tweed Caldera, the world's second largest extinct shield volcano crater, Mt Warning - or Wollumbin, the traditional Aboriginal name of the Bundjalung people.

The property is our home and a dedicated wildlife sanctuary, and it is our intent for it to remain solely for habitat and wildlife protection.
Our sanctuary covers over 42.3 hectares, of which approximately 36.07 hectares is remnant vegetation, mapped as very high or high ecological status. A diversity of vegetation communities, including subtropical rainforest, both wet and dry sclerophyll forest, are found on Urliup Wildlife Sanctuary, with water sources being a dam and a creek which runs through the property. A wide range of wildlife species are known to occur here on Urliup Wildlife Sanctuary.
Urliup Wildlife Sanctuary is a member of Humane Society International, Wildlife Land Trust Australia and Land for Wildlife, who provide support to manage areas for biodiversity and wildlife habitat. We are very passionate about conservation of Australian flora and fauna.
