Native to eastern Queensland and north-eastern New South Wales (i.e. from Cooktown in northern Queensland south to Coffs Harbour in northern New South Wales).
Naturalised in northern Victoria, south-western Western Australia (i.e. in the Darling Range near Mundaring and near Perth) and beyond its native range in central New South Wales (i.e. in suburban Sydney). Possibly also sparingly naturalised in south-eastern South Australia.
Naturalised overseas in south-western USA (i.e. California) and Hawaii.
This species is regarded as an environmental weed in Western Australia and in the wider Sydney and Blue Mountains region in central New South Wales. Lemon-scented gum (Corymbia citriodora) is spreading from deliberate plantings and invading open woodland areas, particularly in south-western Western Australia.
