Hi Roy,
It would appear to be a male Red-rumped parrot although you can not see the red rump on your photos.
Quite common in NW Sydney, usually accompanied by the female who is of similar size, but a muddy
olive colour. Sometimes I see them in small flocks, especially after rain, splashing around in a pool of water.

Best regards - Mike
