Two species, brigalow (A. harpophylla) and gidgee (A. cambagei) form open woodlands on flat and gently undulating terrain on heavy and relatively fertile clay and clay-loam soils primarily in the 300-700mm annual rainfall region of Eastern Australia. These woodlands extend from a northern extreme into northern New South Wales. Brigalow and gidgee occur as mixed communities in some regions and are commonly associated with several other woody species, including overstorey species such as Eucalyptus coolabah, E. cambageana, Casuarina cristata, and a range of understorey species
Brigalow occurs from coastal regions receiving in excess of 900mm rainfall per year through to the semi arid 500mm rainfall region although it is primarily a semi-arid zone species. Gidgee replaces brigalow as rainfall drops in western regions and extends from 650mm-300mm. Gidgee, with a maximum height of approximately 12 metres is somewhat smaller than brigalow which can attain heights of 20 metres. In the north-western regions Black gidgee replaces brigalow in many areas, while in Central-Western districts Boree forms woodlands and shrublands, frequently on cracking clay soils and often in association with A. cambagei. Georgina gidgee woodlands are found in more arid regions in the 200-250mm rainfall.
