The Plains-wanderer is a small ground-dwelling bird. The female bird is larger and more brightly coloured than the male. It is of great scientific interest as it may be an ancient member of Australia's avifauna, with origins dating back to when Australia was part of the Gondwanan supercontinent.
It is found in the low-land native grasslands in the Riverina region, in Northern Victoria and smaller numbers are found in south-western and central Queensland. It is effectively extinct in south-west Victoria, south-east South Australia, eastern New South Wales and south-east Queensland. Lowland native grasslands are among the most depleted ecosystems in south-east Australia.
