hey can anyone help me?

Been at a park some time ago, and birds come and feed off your hands (Rosella's etc...), and it's not Healesville sanctuary, does anyone know where this could be?

It may have been Gumbuya Park near Tynong - between Drouin and Pakenham. It's east of Melbourne but on the Princes Highway.

This is the link :

Was it Tarra Warra Winery? [original VT link]

It could have been either at Warramate Hills flora & fauna reserve or Maroondah Reservoir Park

Were you on a coach tour that included Healsville, Yarra Valley and Dandenongs - if so it could have been at Grants Reserve near Belgrave.

Please ignore the link above by soon-to-be-deleted NadaE. It is being spam-posted in the forums.

Another suggestion is the great park beside the Maroondah Reservoir. Although I have not been there for a long time, I would think the area is alive with Rosellas.

I'm a volunteer on Puffing Billy railway and the Lakeside station area has a resident population of about 20 crimson rosellas that do eat from outstretched hands. If you go to [original VT link] there is a photo of 2 of them at Lakeside.

It could be Grants Picnic Ground in the Dandenong Ranges near Belgrave. Was there a gift shop/cafe close by? I used to see many buses stopped there to let visitors feed the birds,.
