I agree with Russ and Greg. In southern Queensland, New Holland is very much
a bird of the hinterland, often along streams in well-vegetated country,
while White-cheeked is essentially a bird of the coastal wallum.

No it's not common, in fact quite rare, to see these species together. I've
only seen them together (well, within 100 m ) at the same site once in 18
years on the Sunshine Coast, in 2010 near Baroon Pocket Dam, North Maleny.
White-cheeked inhabit mostly coastal banksia heath and adjacent lowland
scrub with taller banksia, whilst New Holland H/E is less frequently seen,
and then usually on the Blackall Range in euc. woodlands (though I have seen
New Hollands on the lowlands, near Landsborough).
