Гнездятся каравайки колониями с другими птицами, например с пеликанами and цаплями гнёзда располагают в густых зарослях.  В кладке обычно от 3 до 6  зеленовато-голубых яиц, которые  насиживают оба родителя. Птенцы вылупляются через три недели,  в случае гибели кладки каравайки делают повторную кладку. После того как птенцы становятся на крыло, старые и молодые птицы образуют большие стаи и кочуют в пределах района гнездования.

Каравайки широко распространены не только в Австралии, они обитают в Евразии, Африке и Северной Америке.
