Broken Hill Complex - climate

The Broken Hill Complex Bioregion generally has a hot, dry climate and lies within the NSW arid zone. The bioregion is one of four bioregions, all in the far west of the state, that are dominated by a hot, persistently dry desert climate (Stern et al. 2000). Patches of semi-arid climate in the centre of the bioregion complement the arid climate prevalent in most of the bioregion.
