Corymbia maculata occurs along coastal and sub-coastal New South Wales from Manning River valley south to Bega, with an outlier to the south at Mottle Range, north eastern Victoria. Natural stands often comprise attractive trees up to 35–45 m in height, with long trunks. On exposed coastal headland sites they often have a low stunted habit. Corymbia maculata grows on a wide range of often shallow, well-drained, clayey soils on valley slopes and ridges.
