I saw this fellow on King St in Bungedore at around 10am this morning. I didn't have my camera on me (of course) so I zoomed home to the other side of town to grab it. It was feeding with between 3 and 8 other galahs (of varying ages) in a couple of vacant blocks filled with various grasses.

I attached the second photo as well to show the underwing coverts, which are still pink. Interestingly, a couple of the coverts appear to be white with a think pink edge.
