Brigalow Belt South - climate

The bioregion is located within the eastern subhumid region of Australia (NSW NPWS 2000a).

A subhumid climate, with no dry season and a hot summer, characterises the southeastern section of the bioregion, while a generally dry subtropical climate dominates to the northwest. Minor patches to the southeast of the bioregion fall within the temperate zone, with no dry season and a warm summer. To the far west of the bioregion and in the outlier enclosed within the Darling Riverine Plains Bioregion, the climate can be described as hot and semi-arid.
