What are Australia's deserts?
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.
