The highest mountains are part of the Great Dividing Range that line the east coast from Cape York Peninsula south to the state of Victoria. Most people reside along the southeast coast, in cities like Melbourne or Sydney, because winds from the southeast release rain there—leaving the interior beyond the mountains arid or semiarid. • We went to Perth where I had a farm stay with all farm animals like horses , sheep, chickens, kangaroos, camels, illama, ostrich and dogs. In Sydney, I enjoyed at Boondi Beach, Harbour Bridge and aquarium. Melbourne country side is very beautiful and I liked Blue Mountains over there. In Brisbane, Movie World, Ocean World was good fun.
