What capital city is located on the St. Lawrence River
Provinces on Canada's eastern and western coasts have capital
cities that are located on islands . In the west, British
Columbia's capital of Victoria is located on the southern tip of
Vancouver Island. In the east Charlottetown is the capital of the
province of Prince Edward Island. British Columbia is a huge
province, consisting of over 100 named islands as well as a
mainland component spanning the distance between Washington State
and southeast Alaska. Prince Edward Island is Canada's smallest
province, located in the Gulf of St. Lawrence just off the coast
between Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. In contrast to British
Columbia, Prince Edward Island consists of but a single island.

Only the state capitals are situated on the coast. The national capital of Canberra is located inland. Australia is a vast continent, and it was logical to establish the early colonies (which essentially became the capital cities later on) on the coast where they could be accessed by large ships. The colonies relied on ships for supplies, as it took several decades to explore and establish trade routes overland between the colonies.
Along the northern coast and in the country's interior are the locations of Suriname's cities. Specifically, Suriname's capital and larger cities are located within easy access of the country's Atlantic coastline. The country provides more options for air, land, and water transportation the closer its villages, towns and cities are to the coast. The further away from Atlantic, the smaller the population clusters tend to be and the fewer choices there are for transportation.

It has 4 main islands (Honshu, Hokkaido, Kyushu and Shikoku) and 4000 smaller islands. Honshu is the largest island, almost 80 percent of the Japanese population lives there. The land is 70% mountains, and only 18% of the land is suitable for settlement. That's why the cities are very crowded. See…
The capital cities in Australia were the first settlements in each of the colonies that were established between 1788 and 1836. it was necessary for these settlements to be established on the coast, as the settlements relied on ships for trade and supplies. It was natural for these first towns to become the capital cities of each colony and, later, each state.
Paramaribo and Georgetown are the respective capital cities of Suriname and Guyana. Both capitals are also the largest cities in their respective countries. Georgetown is located in northern Guiana on the Atlantic coast. It's at the mouth of the Demerara River. Paramaribo is located in north Suriname on the banks of the Suriname River. That puts it inland at about 9.3 miles [1.5 kilometers] from the Atlantic Ocean.
