According to wholevehicles, Australia is the sixth-largest country in the world, covering an area of 7,692,024 square kilometers. It is located in the Southern Hemisphere between the Indian and Pacific Oceans. Australia is surrounded by thousands of islands and has a coastline of 25,760 kilometers. The majority of the landmass is flat and low-lying, with a few mountain ranges scattered throughout. The Great Dividing Range runs along the east coast of Australia from Queensland to Victoria and includes some of Australia’s highest mountains such as Mount Kosciuszko. In the north-west corner lies Arnhem Land, a rugged terrain with rocky escarpments and sandstone cliffs. The Northern Territory is largely desert with most of its terrain being flat or slightly undulating. The Red Centre features Uluru (Ayers Rock), a massive sandstone monolith rising 348 meters above sea level. Australia also has many rivers including some large ones like Murray River which runs through New South Wales and Victoria before it empties into Lake Alexandrina in South Australia. Other rivers include Darling River, Fitzroy River, Gascoyne River and Lachlan River all flowing into the Murray–Darling basin which covers a large part of eastern Australia including New South Wales and parts of Queensland, Victoria and South Australia. There are also numerous lakes throughout Australia such as Lake Eyre in central Australia which at times fills up due to heavy rains in northern parts of the country providing an oasis for wildlife species such as waterbirds and fish. Australia also has many unique flora species found nowhere else in the world such as eucalyptus trees or “gum trees” which are native to this continent alone; some species can reach heights up to 90 meters tall! There are also more than 500 species of mammals found here including koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, dingoes and wombats amongst others; many marsupials have adapted well to living within human settlements due to their omnivorous diet consisting mostly of vegetation but also small insects or rodents when necessary for survival. Reptiles are also abundant here with over 500 species present including snakes (venomous & non-venomous), lizards & turtles; some endemic species include blue tongue lizards & frilled neck lizards both native to this continent only!
