Bioregions represent the primary level of biodiversity classification in Queensland. These regions are based on broad landscape patterns that reflect the major structural geologies and climate as well as major changes in flora and fauna groups. Queensland has 19 recognised bioregions occurring in whole or part under the model for an Interim Biogeographic Regionalisation for Australia (IBRA).
Within the Burdekin Dry Tropics region, 3 main bioregions exist (in part) - the Brigalow Belt , the Einasleigh Uplands and Desert Uplands. A very small section of the southern Wet Tropics, western part of the Central Mackay Coast, and a very small part of the eastern Gulf Plains exist in the region as well.
