In the last century there appeared to be,
for a couple of summers, a resident New Holland in the shrubbery at the front
of the Hawker Bowling Club, but it disappeared when they removed the shrubbery.

Holland Honeyeater: O'Connor
Here in the wilds of Florey, our
Banksia gets fairly regular (i.e. at least once a year) visitations from NH
Honeyeaters. The last was in Early December when, as I recall, it hung around
for 2 or 3 days.

So might I, but despite being almost within sight of the NBG, and with a
bird-friendly garden, in 20 years here I've never seen one.
