Macquarie Is. and Bishop and Clerk Islets, wandering to Campbell Is. and occasionally to s. New Zealand (South Island, Otago). Pale-faced birds have been observed at the following locations: occasionally at Heard and Kerguelen Is. with small numbers breeding in colonies of Macaroni Penguins at Marion and Crozet Is.
