Sydney Parrots, a Unique Island and more

Sydney Trip Overview

Sydney parrots are amazing. Whilst our iconic kangaroos, koalas and wombats are iconic, there’s more to Australia than our amazing mammals. Did you know that one sixth of the word’s parrots call Australia home? 56 species of the 300 or so species of parrot are found in Australia, and only 5 of these are found elsewhere in the world. More than a dozen of these are found in Sydney and many are found throughout Sydney suburbs.

On this tour, we will search for Sydney parrots in at least 3 different locations around Sydney. During the day we may see many of our colourful parrots that include king parrots, cockatoos, lorikeets, corellas, rosellas and galahs. On some days we may only find a few of these species, on others we will find ten or so. Often, we may also see other birds including pelicans, ibis, brush turkeys, kookaburras and magpies.
