It covers an area from the Queensland border just north of Tenterfield through to the Upper Hunter centres of Merriwa, Aberdeen and Scone.

The economic base of the region is extremely diverse, including wide range of agriculture, mining, light industry and professional services, as well as being a tourism and events destination served by excellent health, education and retail sectors.

Covering 66,394 square kilometres, it is larger than mainland Tasmania.
