Best Answer

Over 92% of the Australian population are urban dwellers along the east and southeastern quadrant of the continent, ranging from Brisbane, the Gold and Sunshine Coasts of southern Queensland, down the New South Wales coastline to Victoria and its capital, Melbourne. This is the most fertile region of Australia, with the most flowing rivers. It also includes the capital, Canberra, which has the highest population density of all the states.

Sydney is the most populated city, with Melbourne being the second largest.
