The Scarlet Robin is a common red-breasted Australasian robin in the passerine bird genus ''Petroica''. The species is found on continental Australia and its offshore islands, including Tasmania. The species was split into two in 1999 by Schodde and Mason, and as the original collection by Gmelin was from Norfolk Island, this retained the name of ''multicolor'' and is now known as the Pacific Robin.
