I thought so too on the basis of being more green than yellow. They are so similar that Forshaw & Cooper’s book has them on the same page and calls it Jandaya Conure. I don’t know how common they are in captivity. I know I have seen several Sun Conures, not sure about the other.

Thanks to all who replied so quickly.

Consensus seems to be Jenday Conure (Aratinga jandaya) also known as Jandaya Parakeet, a South American parrot. Hope this escapee finds its way back to its aviary. Surviving in the wild around Bourke might be a hard ask for this bird.
