It is a new housing estate on the former Croydon Golf Club golf course. Many of the houses could be classed as high density, being two storeys and touching each other. They have small front yards and mostly nice landscaped gardens.
On the corner of Spriggs Drive is a large grassed park with a playground and an undercover BBQ and picnic area. Opposite this park is another small bush area on the corner of Millard Street, which has a path leading through to one end of Evans Drive.

A similar surprise was looking up at a tree I was standing under to see another cockatoo feeding in a gum tree. It was soon joined by a noisy miner, who seemed to delight in harassing cockatoos and other birds.
This cockatoo was enjoying a feed when an interloper appeared..
