Ideas for an Australian native aviary

Hi, I’m not sure if this is the correct place to ask about aviaries, but didnt see a dedicated place for aviaries, so I hope this is ok. I’m currently getting back Into the process of turning my shed into an aviary, I tried to start last year but didn’t end up finishing. After some thought I’ve decided I want to fill it with Australian native birds and plants. I have 2 budgies who are quite friendly and a pair of elegant parrots (currently in the process of having chicks) and was wondering if they’d get along? The shed is 28ft long, 6 1/2 feet high and 10ft wide. So it’s quite big. I was also wondering about putting other birds such as maybe a pair or just one cockatiel, some finches (any finches from Australia) and maybe some bourkes? Also I was wondering about other neophema parrots. I know that they’ll hybridise with eachother but if I bought them in already bonded pairs would this stop that? I also want to put my flightless lorikeet in there, not at night only during the day. She can’t fly so I wanted to just get her a bottlebrush bush and let her have fun in there. She’s very friendly and has lived with both budgies and cockatiels without a problem. Any advice or bird suggestions would be awesome.

Theres no guarantee that two birds will get along, slowly introduce them to each other probably two at at a time, some birds tend to be more aggressive in pairs. Can’t help with the hybridisation question, sorry.

I would dedicate the aviary to budgies only, but I'm a bit biased. :xflove:
