Wildlife Land Trust / Sanctuaries / NSW / Andelaine Sanctuary

Trish Cunningham is the owner of Andelaine Sanctuary, a property located northeast of Tamworth, NSW. Purchased with the intent that the property would be a dedicated wildlife sanctuary, Trish is committed to improving the habitats on the property, and has undertaken a valuable revegetation program to enlarge the surrounding habitat for native animals and the wildlife that she rescues.

Andelaine Sanctuary covers approximately 2.63 hectares of gently sloping sandy loam and is nestled at the foothills of old growth native forest. Wildlife found on the property includes common wallaroos (Macropus robustus), red-necked wallabies (Macropus rufogriseus), bare-nosed wombats (Vombatus ursinus), galahs (Eolophus roseicapilla), grass parrots (Neophema spp.), eastern (Platycercus eximus) and crimson (Platycercus elegans) rosellas, sulphur-crested cockatoos (Cacatua galerita), crows (Corvus orru), magpies (Cracticus tibicen), pied currawongs (Strepera graculina) and a diversity of reptile species.
