New South Wales, Australia.
Considerable confusion concerning correct nomenclature previously existed: species name traditionally given as magnirostris, but this is replaced by grallarius as the valid name, following the principle of First Reviser#R. This species is sometimes divided into three races, with recognition of rufescens (NW & NC Australia) and ramsayi (N Queensland), but these forms are poorly marked and species probably more realistically treated as polymorphic. Monotypic.
N & S Western Australia through Northern Territory to Queensland, then S to SE South Australia and Victoria; also Trans-Fly area of S New Guinea.
