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

The main rivers in the Central West subregion are the Macquarie, Castlereagh and Bogan rivers of the Murray-Darling Basin. The subregion extends from the plains around Dubbo across the low-lying plains of the Macquarie and Castlereagh river systems north-west to the Barwon River floodplains. The main cities and towns for the subregion are Dubbo, Coonabarabran, Coonamble, Gilgandra and Nyngan. Most of the land in the subregion is used for agriculture (grazing and cropping). The subregion contains seasonal, semi-permanent and permanent wetlands and lagoons, including the Macquarie Marshes which is an internationally recognised and protected wetland. The subregion is home to a number of water-dependent ecological communities, and plant and animal species which are listed as endangered or critically endangered under NSW and Commonwealth legislation.
