My first thought was Rainbow Lorikeet but doesn’t quite fit (they have a narrow distinct yellow band with black above and below on the inner web, with green on the outer web), nor any other parrot, which would be the obvious first group to choose. Whatever bird it is, the upper surface of the closed wing needs to be green and the under surface of the open wing needs to match the orangish colour, such that much of the underwing fits that colour. I believe it fits to Wompoo Fruit-Dove. Checking the Pizzey & Knight field guide, noting the underwing colours, it is an obvious match. I guess they would sometimes be at Brisbane Botanical Gardens. The size and shape would match also.

Here's a feather pick dup in Brisbane Botanical Gardens. I can't think what bird has green and yellow feathers (about 4 cm long).
