Wilcannia is located where the Barrier Highway crosses the Darling River. The area is semi-arid to desert with an annual rainfall of 255 millimetres. Common plants species that survive in these harsh dry conditions are River Red Gum, Yellow Box, Oldman Saltbush and Lignum. The surrounding area is very sparsely settled by pastoralists who have large land holdings, used primarily to run sheep. The Information Centre is in the Council Chambers in Reid Street which runs southwest off the Barrier Highway in the centre of town.
