Occurs in NEQ, CEQ and southwards as far as north eastern New South Wales. (The form referring to this species name in this publication may be endemic to NEQ). Altitudinal range from 50-800 m. Grows in well developed rain forest on a variety of sites but probably reaches its best development on upland sites on deep red soils derived from basalt.
Before the development of fibreglass and carbon fibre, the timber of this species was sometimes used in the manufacture of fishing rods. Swain (1928).
Produces a useful general purpose timber suitable for house construction in places not exposed to the weather.
