There is extraordinary diversity from brilliant blue waters of the salt lake Wyara in Currawinya National Park to the red sand hills edging the Cooper Creek flood plain in the far west. The area also offers a diverse variety flora and fauna.

Thargomindah is the main town in the Shire. There are two other towns – Hungerford on the Queensland/New South Wales border and Noccundra, 140 kilometres west of Thargomindah.
