Justification of Red List category
Although this species is restricted to a fairly small area, there is no evidence of a continuing decline. The habitat of Albert's Lyrebird is nearly all managed for conservation and, while fires affected some of its range in 2019, losses are unlikely to be continuing. For these reasons the species is classified as Least Concern.
