Behind the scenes information
Voice Actor Terry Gill

Maurie is a Galah, that's for sure. In his time he has helped found not only the Bush Rescue, but a number of watering holes as well. It would be fair to say that he was not only the owner, but the best customer too. It is easy to get along with this cranky old bird, just don`t sew sequins into his shirt!

Maurie has a sister who is also a Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo.


Ty the Tasmanian Tiger

He acts as Ty's mentor, helping him find his second boomerang and founding Bush Rescue. He can be found in special spots scattered throughout every level and when approached, he delivers a monologue of tips and background information about the area.

Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2

He mans the radio station at Burramudgee Bush Rescue and notifies you when new missions appear on your map.

Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 3

Maurie left Bush Rescue during Ty's absence, but rejoins after Ty wins a race against him.


"Oi! Who are you calling birdbrain, fur face?!" (To Julius)

"Strike me lucky!"

"Welcome to Rainbow Cliffs, mate."


  • It's possible that Maurie has known the Bilbies for a while, and could have helped raise Ty; thus, acting as a possible father or uncle figure.
  • Steve Stamatiadis has mentioned Maurie is married to a Galah named Muriel who has not been seen or mentioned in the games. However, she could make an appearance in a possible future game.
  • In Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2 and Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 3, he does not appear in the hub worlds, but he does appear on the communicator to tell Ty what missions to do.
