The New Holland Honeyeater is found throughout southern Australia. The subspecies P. n. longirostris is specific to Western Australia. It is a very active and gregarious bird and when danger approaches, a group will form together giving out warning calls.
They mainly feed from the nectar of flowers and are consequently, key pollinators of many plant species such as Banksia, Hakes, Xenthorrhoea (Grass tree), and Acacia. They supplement their diet with insects that are rich in protein. They make a bow-shaped nest in shrubs or small trees and usually lay two eggs.
