    I have this weird complex where I picture everything in Australia that isn't either VIC, NSW or QLD, is just purely desert.

    Except Tasmania. Tasmania is just a big puddle.

      eh, doing better than the rest of the world, whereby Australia = Sydney + Barrier Reef + Desert [and the country itself is the size of Tasmania]
