Habitat

— It extends from the Illawarra to Northern Queensland, being confined to the coast districts. It usually occurs in brushes or good soil, and often on the banks of water-courses.

Following are specimen reports of its occurrence in a few localities:—"In New South Wales it is fairly plentiful in the Tweed district." "There is abundance of Brown Pine on the north shore of Port Macquarie, say 25 to 30 feet high, and from 15 to 18 inches in diameter." On the Gloucester River I observed some fine trees of Podocarpus elata, which I was informed is very common on this and other rivers and creeks in the district.
