Yancowinna County is one of the 141 Cadastral divisions of New South Wales. It contains the city of Broken Hill and village of Silverton.

Some New South Wales industrial relations laws have excluded the county of Yancowinna.[1] The county is also the only part of New South Wales which is in the same timezone as South Australia (+9.5 rather than +10).[2]

The name Yancowinna is believed to be derived from a local Aboriginal word and is also the name of the location within the county of Yancowinna Glen.[3]
