WELCOME TO LYELL DEER SANCTUARY

Lyell Deer Sanctuary is home to a small herd of rescued deer; a motley crew of red, Rusa and fallow deer.

 

Our passion is rescuing and providing a safe haven for orphaned, injured and displaced deer in Australia, while offering visitors the unique opportunity to get close and interact with these beautiful animals.

 

We hope to create a space where humans and animals come together in joy, curiosity, and adventure, fostering a deep appreciation for nature, and inspiring visitors to become lovers of wildlife and the environment.

About Us

We are NOT a zoo or 'farm experience'; we are a small, family-run animal rescue service opening up our property to share the beauty and magic, and a taste of animal sanctuary life.

Along with the deer, we also have goats, cows, chickens, guinea pigs, guinea fowl, peacocks, cats and even a lizard! We have over 50 rescue animals currently living at the Sanctuary. 

You can visit us and cuddle, sit with and hand-feed the deer and many other animals, and your support helps us continue to rescue and care for the deer.
