The Common Wallaroo is distributed throughout most of Australia where it is found in eucalypt forest and woodland, scrubland and grassland where there are escarpments and rocky slopes.

During the day they tend to sleep under a rock or in a cave and they come out to graze as evening approaches. I saw these wallaroos between 5 pm and 6 pm.
