The Yellow-throated Miner is a large honeyeater found across much of Australia except north Qid, along the east coast and the far southeast and southwest. It is also not found in Tasmania. Not present in Canberra but starts appearing to the west of the Brindabella mountains west of the city. On the eastern edge of its range it overlaps with its close relative the Noisy Miner. This species, while common, can be wary to approach.
