The Crimson Rosella is endemic to forests and
woodlands of eastern Australia.
In north Queensland it is a scarce resident of
upland rainforests. Unlike
southern populations, there is no distinctive immature plumage.
Food is mainly seeds, obtained from a great variety
of plants, including herbs and tall trees.
Like other rosellas, adults form permanent pairs
that maintain close contact all year. These pairs and their young
may form small groups.
