The Rainbow Lorikeet is a species of Australasian parrot. These beautifully coloured birds spend most of their time in trees, eating pollen, fruit, nectar and insects. They’re most commonly found along the eastern seaboard, from Queensland to South Australia and North Western Tasmania.
Sanctuary founder, Alex Griffiths, began feeding the region’s wild lorikeets to prevent them from damaging his prized blooms. The feeding of the colourful lorikeets soon developed into a local curiosity and tourist attraction. Every day guests can come feed these wild birds and enjoy them coming to perch on their heads and arms. Whilst feeding the Rainbow Lorikeets keep an eye out for the smaller green Scaly-breasted Lorikeet which will often come in to feed with the Rainbow Lorikeets.
Baby Rainbow Lorikeets are born with a black beak which slowly changes to orange as they grow older.
