Located 850 km south west of Sydney and 450 km north of Melbourne, Balranald Shire Council covers an area of 21,346 square kilometres. Major townships within the Shire are Balranald (population 1,200) and Euston (population 600). Balranald Shire has a population of 2,361.

The Shire’s economy has traditionally relied upon dry-land and irrigated agricultural production of grains, wool, sheep meet and beef (valued at more than $80 million in 2006). However primary production is diversifying to encompass horticulture, viticulture, organic agriculture and the growing of fruit and nut trees. Tourism is also now recognised as an important economic driver.

Flood planning is outlined in the Balranald Local Environmental Plan 2010
