A wonderful array of birds and animals inhabit the gardens. The gardens play an important role in conservation of rare and endangered species.

The diversity of plants in the garden provide habitat (homes) for fauna (wildlife/animals), including species which are threatened and protected by law. The gardens are managed to protect, repair and expand  areas of native vegetation. Fauna habitat is being improved by keeping some fallen logs and branches, replanting native vegetation and keeping large, mature native trees.

The gardens are home to a number of species:

The list of fauna was provided by Fauna Watch, a community based fauna monitoring program for the Sunshine Coast. The group comprises over 100 observers and is sponsored by the Wildlife Preservation Society of Queensland - Sunshine Coast and Hinterland Branch.
