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!


He helps Ty find his second boomerang in Ty 1 and founded Bush Rescue. And has a sister who is also a Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo.


He acts as Ty's mentor in all three games. In Ty 1, 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. In Ty 2, he mans the radio station at Burramudgee Bush Rescue and notifies you when new missions appear on your map.

In Ty 3 Maurie leaved 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 is 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 Stamatiais has mentioned Maurie is married to a Galah named Muriel who has not been seen or mentioned in the games, but she would make an appearence in a fourth game.
  • In Ty 2 and Ty 3, he does not appear in the hub worlds, but he does appear on the communicator to tell Ty what missions to do.
