Australia is the greatest island and the smallest continent on a planet.

On the basic continent 5 states and 2 territories are located. The sixth state, Tasmania, is located in 200 km to the south from state of Victoria, and separated from continent Bass strait ( Bass Strait ).

In the east the continent is divided by the Big Water-separate Ridge, which York ( Cape reaches from east coast, peninsula Kejp York Peninsula ) state of Queensland up to Melbourn, state of Victoria. The highest point of Australia is Kostyushko's mountain ( Mount Kosciusko ) height of 2229 meters which is located near to border of states the New Southern Wales and Victoria in covered by a snow Alpine region of the Big Water-separate Ridge.

To the West from a water-separate ridge lays, basically, flat district with several low mountain ridges, as Flinders ( Flinders ) in South Australia and MacDonnell near to Alise-Spring ( Alice Springs ).

The Center of continent basically is made with sparsely populated desert. About 80 % of all population of Australia lives at east coast or along a shore.

These lakes often for a long time dry up: biggest of them, lake Ajre ( Lake Eyre ), the area 9475 sq. km, it was filled in 1994 for the first time for the last decade. Water from these lakes, except for that which evaporates, feeds Central Australian Artesian pool ( Central Australian Artesian Basin ), enormous natural Underground water system. This water gives a life to set of sources in the most remote areas of desert (these sources during centuries allow to survive to the person in the most "dead" areas deserts); the same system provides with water Alise-Spring.
