Acacia maidenii occurs in Qld, NSW and Vic, in coastal and subcoastal environments, from Proserpine in the north to Orbost in the south. Grows usually in more fertile soils, sometimes derived from basalt, often on the edges of littoral rainforest. Flowers mostly January-June (WorldWideWattle website). Has been recognised as an endangered species in Victoria just recently.

Acacia maidenii contains tryptamines, mainly in the bark. The bark contains 0.36% DMT as well as 0.24% of N-methyltryptamine.
