Acacia complanata is found along the east coast from around Bundaberg, QLD, to near Grafton, NSW, extending into inland central Queensland between the Blackdown Tableland (west of Rockhampton) and just north of Charleville. It is found on gravely and loam soils, occurring as an understorey shrub, though it will grow to 5 metres.

A good garden plant, it can flower at any time of the year. It has a lignotuber which allows it to regrow after fire.
