Rainbow lorikeets are native to northern and eastern regions (including the southeast) of Australia. There is a small population around Perth which has only come about due to pet birds being released from aviaries. Being adaptable, they have thrived quite well. Similarly, although the rainbow lorikeet is not native to Tasmania, having been introduced as a result of release/escape of pet birds, it has thrived there as well, and is considered a pest which should be eradicated. It is found around Launceston and in the northeast corner of the state.

They live in rainforests and bushland, and are also common in suburbia, feeding on the native plants in people's backyards.
