The great majority of the land mass of Australia is either arid

or sem-arid, there is very little surface water, the rain fall is

low and there are very few rivers that actually run other than

immediately after heavy rain. Some of the larger deserts are the

Great Victoria Desert, the Gibson Desert, the Tanami Desert, the

Great Sandy Desert, the Little Sandy Desert, Sturt Stony Desert,

the Simpson Desert. That accounts for most of the west of the

continent, nearly two-thirds.
