In summer, wanderer butterflies abound throughout their range along the east coast of Australia from Queensland to South Australia and across into southwest Western Australia. They are also found in isolated parts of the Northern Territory. They are strong fliers and can cover long distances during their adult life, about a month to six weeks in summer. During this time, they can move to unoccupied areas to find new plants to lay eggs. They take nectar from flowers to maintain their energy levels as they go.
