How Many Parrots Are There in Australia? Australian Parrot List

Australia is home to more than 50 species of parrots. This includes those in the parrot family, lorikeets, and cockatoos.

To date, one species has tragically known to be extinct – the beautiful Paradise Parrot. Many others are now considered endangered. A few species thrive in large numbers due to extensive changes to habitat since European colonisation of the continent.
