Sydney parrots are amazing. Whilst their kangaroos, koalas and wombats are iconic, there’s more to Australia than our amazing mammals. Did you know that one sixth of the world’s parrots call Australia home? 56 species of the 300 or so species of parrot are found in Australia, and only five 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.
