The Bar-breasted Honeyeater is distributed in northern Australia from Broome in Western Australia to Rockhampton in Queensland. It is found in paperbark swamps and savanna woodland. They are nomadic and follow the flowering of paperbarks and other eucalypts to feed on their nectar. They also feed on insects.
