All buyers of exotic birds need to familiarise themselves with this list. Australian Government statement: "Species that have not been classified on the '2007 Inventory of exotic (non-native) bird species known to be in Australia' as either class 1, 2 or 3, are considered illegal by the Department".

Biosecurity Act 2014 (Queensland) 

Under this Act, aviary birds not kept commercially for the production of meat or eggs for human consumption may be kept without registering your property regardless of the number kept. However, ALL pigeon breeds of the genus Columba livia must be registered, as do all domestic poultry if kept in numbers of 100 birds or more. The Queensland government's Aviary Bird Biosecurity Reference Group, which includes QCBS the Queensland Council of Bird Societies, and four highly-qualified veterinarians, have formulated an 'Aviary Birds Biosecurity Code of Practice', a list of procedures for pet and aviary bird keepers that will prevent the spread of disease to their birds. This Act is administered by the Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries.
