Lorikeet Park Property Sign

LORIKEET PARK focuses in on one of Australia’s favourite and most colorful parrots – the rainbow lorikeet. True to its name, you can see pretty much every color of the rainbow in its brilliant plumage – emerald green, ruby red, lemon yellow, intense purple, violet, orange, blue, etc. Even with all these colors, these birds can sometimes be hard to spot high in the leafy branches of a flowering gum tree and usually their loud screeches are what draw the attention first. Relatively small members of the parrot family, they are about 11 to 12 inches long, with a life span of about 20 years. Their habitat can range from heathlands to rainforest, from the coast to inland mountains, in both rural and urban settings.

These are gregarious and sociable birds that are normally found in flocks – both when feeding and when roosting, when they may group together in the thousands. A lot of their food comes from trees- flowers, pollen, berries and fruits, and nectar and they are known to travel to feeding sites more than 30 miles away. Their brush-tipped tongues are especially adapted to extracting nectar from blossoms, and often use their feet as hands for gripping food and branches, when they can be amazingly acrobatic.

It’s not surprising that lorikeets are a favourite subject for paintings, and in this case, the artwork is three dimensional - hand sculpted and painted birds perched on a branch with gum leaves and nuts. The text is hand carved and painted, while the border groove is carved and gilded with 23kt gold leaf.
