Galahs are found in all Australian states, and are absent only from the driest areas and the far north of Cape York Peninsula.
They are common in some metropolitan areas, for example Adelaide, Perth and Melbourne, and common to abundant in open habitats which offer at least some scattered trees for shelter.
Flocks of galahs will often congregate and forage on foot for food in open grassy areas.
The Galah nests in tree cavities. The eggs are white and there are usually two or five in a clutch. The eggs are incubated for about 25 days, and both the male and female share the incubation. The chicks leave the nest about 49 days after hatching.
