There are a growing number of mature sites in the world where Permaculture is practiced, demonstrated, and often taught. Quite a few of those have videos showing them off on Youtube.

Some inspiring sites by big names that come to mind are:
Holmgren's Melliodora
Lawton's Zaytuna Farm

Paul's tour of Wheaton Labs is here: https://permies.com/w/tour

What locations do you know of that are great examples of permaculture being put in practice?

This thread can become a resource for people needing inspiration for their own property, for those trying to figure out what they might want in their future property, or for people interested in visiting a permaculture garden in person and looking to find one relatively nearby.

Permies is my go-to site to learn about Permaculture.

I can learn all about Bill Mollison's Design Manual right here with the resources that others have furnished.

Here is a good example of what I am talking about:

I am sorry that I missed the locations part.

I have been to some beautifully designed gardens, especially the ones I saw in Ontario, Canada on our trip to Niagra Falls.

I would have no idea if those gardens we designed by a permaculture designer.

I am looking forward to seeing the locations others might have to offer.

Don't forget the Krameterhof!

Not all of the inspiring sites I follow are Permaculture in name, but they are working well because they are operating with many Permaculture principles or techniques. All of the famous Greening the Desert-type of locations are fascinating to me, and I love to watch videos on those--and Gabe Brown's regenerative farm as well in North Dakota (I think!)  is one of my favorites too.
