The new royal baby may be making international headlines, but there's another Archie who turns heads wherever he goes - Archie the 'Duke of Dungog'.

The Eclectus parrot was so popular at last year's annual Dungog Antiques and Collectibles Fair that he is coming back again.

Glenn Earnshaw from Chichester will bring his 11-year-old pet to the fair and for a gold coin Archie will sit on your shoulder while Glenn takes a photo with your phone.

"People were fascinated with him last year so this year we decided to come back and raise some money for charity," said Glenn of the bird he raised from an egg.

As well as plenty of antiques and collectibles for sale at the fair you can have your own treasures appraised for $2 an item.

The event will be held Saturday, June 1 and Sunday, June 2 at the Dungog RSL and across the road at St Mary's parish hall. The Cobb and Co Coach rides will be back again, weather permitting. Proceeds from this year's event will go to the Gresford Historical Society.
