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).
