The Sub Tropical region spreads across the coastal and inland fringe from Cairns down the Queensland coast to the northern areas of New South Wales and the coastal fringe north of Perth to Geraldton in Western Australia.

The Temperate region occupies the coastal hinterland of New South Wales and Queensland, much of Victoria, Tasmania, the south-eastern corner of South Australia and the south-west of Western Australia.

Within the Temperate region, there is also what is referred to as the cool mountains. This includes high areas of south-eastern New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania.
