The local government act was amended effective 1 January 2014 and changed the name of Central Desert Shire to Central Desert Region.

The Region encompasses an area of approximately 282,090 square kilometres.

The Central Desert Region (Shire) covers most of the Tanami Desert, bordering Western Australia, from just north of Kintore to just south of the Buntine Highway. It then extends east as a relatively narrow section, bordered by the Barkly Region to the north, and Macdonnell Region to the south, extending to the Queensland border.

There are no major towns in the region. It does contain several widely scattered indigenous communities, and pastoral stations, with a total population of 4368 (est. 2015). The Stuart Highway heads north-south through the narrow central section. There are also three major graded roads, in a variable condition. The Tanami Road leaves the Stuart Highway 20 kilometres north of Alice Springs, and heads north-west to Halls Creek, a total of 1085 kilometres; the Plenty Highway which leaves the Stuart Highway 68 kilometres north of Alice Springs, and heads east 728 kilometres to Boulia in Queensland; and the Sandover Highway which leaves the Plenty Highway only 27 kilometres from the Stuart Highway, and heads north-east for 845 kilometres to Mount Isa in Queensland.

All the region is desert, with scattered mountain ranges in the central area. Most of the region is very remote, desert, waterless, and care should be taken.

It contains the remote Tanami-Granites gold mines, and a large number of small historic mines in the Jervois area. Of most interest to fossickers is the Artlunga goldfield, Winnecke Goldfield, and Harts Range gemstone field, north-east of Alice Springs. Arltunga is an easy day drive from Alice Springs. Zircon and garnet tours operate from Gemtree, and bush camping is allowed at Atitjere, close to the mica mines in the area. Most of the areas outside these spots in the Harts Range are remote, mountainous and difficult.

Magnetite
Formula: Fe2+Fe3+2O4
Localities: Reported from at least 48 localities in this region.
Description: "At Mud Tank much of the original magnetite in the outcrops has been converted to hematite ie. martite. In many cases the replacement is incomplete and the martite often retains some magnetism due to the presence of residual magnetite. The martite occurs in situ in the carbonatite as formless bodies up to 30cm or more across. No crystals were observed enclosed in the carbonatite itself, although what first appeared to be magnetite 'crystals' occur abundantly in the surface soils adjacent to the outcrops. Large bodies of martite, found in the carbonatite or as floaters in the soil near the outcrop, were observed to break evenly along four directions of weakness parallel to the octahedron (111), producing a variety of regular shapes all based on the octahedron form. These shapes are identical in size and habit to the 'crystals' scattered over the surface."
