In north-east New South Wales the New Holland Honeyeater is a high country bird (being a Bassian species) and the White-cheeked Honeyeater is a lowland species. I have had both species occasionally in the Washpool National Park, where the New Holland is the more regular species. There have been 2 or 3 observations on the coast of New Holland Honeyeaters but they are, generally, absent there. Presumably the situation in southern Queensland would be similar.
