There is hardly anywhere you can go in Australia without coming across wild parrots.
Even the most inhospitable desert areas which make up most of the country are home to parrots – but they will usually be much more difficult to see than those which live around the coastal perimeter of the country.
Most Australian residents will enjoy everyday life with the sights and sounds of wild parrots doing their thing in the surrounding environment.
And if you’re travelling to Australia you won’t find it difficult to see some of the most common parrots on this island continent – the land of parrots.
In no particular order here are the 10 most common and easy to see wild parrots in Australia:
1. Sulphur-crested Cockatoo
