Emydura subglobosa is found on islands and rivers in coastal Australia and New Guinea, such as Fraser Island, the Jardine River, Daru, Cape York, Stradbroke Islands, and the islands in Torres Strait (Legler and Georges, 1993). These turtles also occur in lowland swamps, which cover large areas of the tropical, open plains in western Papua New Guinea (Georges Guarino and Bito, 2006).
