Water Dragons are usually active around Sydney from September to June, becoming inactive during the cooler months. To survive the the low winter temperatures Water Dragons will enter established burrows or scrape their own between boulders and logs in or near riverbanks and pack dirt into the opening to seal themselves off. Then they will slow their metabolism until spring arrives.
Water Dragons can be found from tropical rainforest in the north to alpine streams in the south, anywhere with flowing water and ample tree cover with basking sites. They can even be found in built-up urban areas provided that the above conditions can be found and water quality is fair.
