Channel Country - climate

The Channel Country Bioregion is one of four NSW bioregions that fall in the arid zone. This climate is characterised by hot temperatures and a persistently low rainfall: the bioregion is known to receive erratic rainfall that usually averages little more than 200 mm per year (Morgan and Terrey 1992).
