The es­tu­ary stingray is en­demic to the coast­line of eastern and north­ern Aus­tralia. It is found close to shore, in es­tu­ar­ies and man­grove forests. Its diet is var­ied and it feeds on shell­fish, worms, crabs and other small crus­taceans. Once com­mon, the stingraygray is now near-threat­ened, pri­mar­ily mar­ily due to habi­tatha loss of es­tu­ar­ine tu­ar­ine wet­lands along the Queens­lan­dueens­land coast­line.
