The pre-settlement vegetation of the north-western quarter of New South Wales (latitude 29-33 degree S, longitude 141-147 degree E) is interpreted and mapped at the Australian continental scale of 1:1000000. The area (approximately 26.6 million ha) represents 28% of the State and is mostly within the Western Division. The map shows 41 plant communities, defined by structure and characteristic species, and 28 mosaic communities. Brief descriptions are provided in the text. Vegetation is predominantly controlled by climatic and edaphic factors. The area covers much of semi-arid and arid New South Wales. Potential problems in vegetation management and conservation options are discussed.
