Hi Tonya, 
I have been recording Rainbow Lorikeets on my Garden Bird Survey chart in Aranda for several years now. The maximum number I have seen in the area (outside my GBS site is 7). I often hear or see them on the Aranda Ridge between Walu St and the Aranda Bushland reserve at the top of the hill. I think they are naturally occurring wild birds.
There is another pair on The Pinnacle behind the houses from Hawker.
I was over in Yass a few months ago and heard some RBLs there. I didn't have bins with me but saw 5. It is very unlikely these are all escapees
