Which parrots can you see in the state of Queensland (QLD), Australia?
Queensland is the most biodiverse part of Australia and features the amazing tropics of the far north where you’ll find some parrot species that are not found anywhere else in Australia – this includes the marvellous Palm Cockatoo and the Eclectus Parrot.
QLD is a huge state featuring vast areas of remote habitat. The types of habitats throughout the state include subtropical forests in the south (much of which has sadly been cleared for human development), wetlands, tropical rainforest, and of course the huge remote arid and desert areas of western QLD.
