This bioregion is in the far west of NSW and extends into South Australia. It has a hot, dry climate and is in the NSW arid zone.
The eastern part of the Broken Hill Complex Bioregion falls in the Murray-Darling Basin while the Darling River flows just outside the southeastern boundary of the bioregion. The bioregion includes parts of the Lake Frome, Lake Victoria, Lake Bancannia, Paroo and Darling River catchments.
Only a small area is under conservation management, with national parks and nature reserves making up most of these conservation management areas.
