Australia has a number of deserts, but many of them have undefined boundaries. Therefore, three of the deserts, the Great Sandy Desert, the Gibson Desert and the Great Victorian Desert, are sometimes grouped together under the name of the Great Western Desert but not the Australian desert. Whilst they are distinct, different deserts, with different topological and geological makeup, there is no clear definition to their boundaries.The so-called Australian Desert is actually made up of the following separate deserts:Great Victoria DesertGreat Sandy DesertTanami DesertSimpson DesertGibson DesertLittle Sandy DesertStrzelecki DesertSturt Stony DesertTirari DesertPedirka Desert
