Thanks folks. Here’s a closer shot of the feathers. With the wind ruffling the feathers and moving the tree, it was a bit difficult getting a clear shot.

Only two possibilities from this: Crimson Rosella or King Parrot and I suggest the latter. Because there is a strong orange tinge to the red (not the dark red tone of a Crimson Rosella) also the extent of green base to the red tipped feathers matches KP more. Certainly not a Gang-gang, as John already wrote. These red feathers are body feathers, not the fluffy crest of a GGC.

Not sure what it is, but not a Gang-gang.
