Deniliquin could be considered the centre of their now-reduced range with a scattered population on farms with native grassland in Northern Victoria and more extensive habitat on the plains north of Deniliquin.
Introducing irrigation channels and more specifically rice crops onto these plains increases the presence of feral cats and foxes which are attracted by the abundance of frogs and mice. The predators then become established in the Plains-wanderer preferred habitat.
