Its distribution extends from the large main island of New Caledonia (Grande Terre), the smaller island (the Isle of Pines) to the south, plus three small islands to the east of Grande Terre (The Loyalty Islands), called Mare, Ouvea and Lifou.

One specimen each from New Zealand, India and the Caroline Islands has been recorded (Heatwole et al. 2005), but are considered to be vagrants.
