The Burns' Dragon is a widespread inland species found in the southern half of Queensland,and northern New South Wales, as well as far eastern areas of the Northern Territory and the far north-east corner of South Australia.

It is often observed perching on fence posts and trees. It may easily be confused with many other species of Dragon lizards (Agamas) including the Gilberts Dragon and Jacky Dragon

Note that most females and immature males look very different to mature males.
