Bird Sighting at Dunkeld,Vic
Sorry- obvious to everyone that I meant Scarlet-CHESTED, blame my excitement.. 
They were quite close to my drive feeding on grass until the car was at close proximity.  I did have a good look and they were striking- vivid red chest, blue head and as they scurried off in opposite direction, predominantly green all over back with a tinge of blue. They appeared to be the size of a Blue-winged Parrot, not nearly as large as a Crimson or Easter Rosella. 
Hope this helps
