The Mid West encompasses a diversity of geographic features. Whilst much of
the region is flat, there are the flat topped Moresby Ranges, the Weld,
Nicholas, Dividing, Montague and Robinson ranges, the river valleys formed by
the Greenough, Chapman and Irwin rivers and the spectacular gorges carved out by
the Murchison River. There are also numerous salt lakes.

with hot/dry summers and cool/wet winters. The inland areas has an arid climate,
much like central Australia, with very hot/dry summers and cold/dry winters.
