Description: The Sanctuary was established in 1947 by beekeeper and flower grower Alex Griffiths, who began feeding the region’s wild Lorikeets to prevent them from ravaging his prized blooms. The feeding of the colourful Lorikeets soon developed from a local curiosity to a popular tourist attraction. In 1976 Alex gifted the park to the National Trust of Queensland as a gift to the Queensland people.
