About Australian Parrot

There are 55 species of parrots in Australia. An early map of Australia even suggests the Australian continent be called 'Terra psittacorum' meaning 'land of parrots'. Notable parrots include the King Parrot, Rosella, Budgerigar, Galah, Rainbow Lorikeet, Sulfur-crested Cockatoo, Palm Cockatoo, Cockatiel, and many more.

Parrots have survived in Australia since ancient times. They have adapted well and exist in rainforests in the east to harsh conditions in the outback. They are clever and resourceful animals that are experts at finding water.
