URI: http://environment.data.gov.au/def/ba/glossary/cooper-subregion

The Cooper subregion spans south-west Queensland and north-east SA. It is part of the Lake Eyre Basin bioregion and adjoins the Galilee subregion in the north-east. Localities in this sparsely populated subregion include Innamincka, Cameron Corner and Moomba. Land is mainly used for cattle grazing of native and semi-natural pasture. The vegetation in this subregion is characterised by sparse shrubs, hummock grasses and scattered grassland. Groundwater is primarily used for livestock watering and by petroleum and conventional gas extraction industries. All of the rivers and lakes in this subregion are seasonal. Major streams include the Cooper Creek and the Thomson, Barcoo and Bulloo rivers. Significant nature conservation areas in this subregion encompass a number of protected areas and wetlands, including the internationally recognised Coongie Lakes and Lake Pinaroo. The Cooper subregion is home to a diverse range of plants and animals, including many that are listed as rare or threatened under Commonwealth and state government legislation.
