Colourful Guests Cause A Stir

One delightful perk of the lush and established gardens at the Buckingham are the unexpected guests they attract.

Although the resident flowering gum is quite a handsome tree it did strike us as odd that so many guests would pause to take pictures and point and gasp.

Upon further investigation we discovered a local flock of Rainbow Lorikeets making a meal of the sweet nectar-y flowers of our gum trees.

The Rainbow Lorikeet is a native bird indigenous to eastern forested and wooded areas.

Just another Rainbow Lorikeet enjoying some nectar, as they do.

Pretty special to have so many visiting us and not something you’d see in the middle of the city!
