New England Tableland - climate

The bioregion lies mainly in the temperate to cool temperate climate zone of NSW, which is characterised by warm summers, with uniform rainfall generally occurring in summer (Bureau of Meteorology). A warmer, sub-humid climate is present in the northeastern edge of the bioregion on the boundary of the North Coast Bioregion. Patches of montane climate occur at higher elevations, and these are characterised by mild summers and no dry season (Stern et al. 2000).
