Only one species of treecreeper occurs in rainforest in Australia, with most of the other species in eucalypt forest and woodland. Brown (Climacterispicumnus) and rufous treecreep-ers are also found in mallee, which are low woodland with multi-stemmed eucalypts. However, they generally avoid areas with dense understory. Black-tailed and white-browed treecreepers (Climacteris affinis) are found in acacia woodland in semi-arid regions, with the latter also having a strong affinity with sheoke trees (Casuarina).
