Australia Elevation Map

Australia is the world's sixth-largest country by total area and has the lowest population density per square kilometer. It has a varied and diverse topography, with deserts in its interior regions and rainforests along its eastern coastline.


Most of Australia's landmass is flat, with an average elevation of about 330 meters above sea level. The eastern seaboard, however, is a more mountainous region, and the Great Dividing Range runs from the top of Queensland to the bottom of Victoria.


The highest point of the Great Dividing Range is Mount Kosciuszko, which stands at 2,228 meters above sea level. The Flinders Ranges in South Australia also have peaks reaching over 1,500 meters in height.

Australia's landscape has been shaped by millions of years of geological activity, including volcanic eruptions, tectonic uplift, and erosion by wind and water. It is a unique and fascinating country, with diverse ecosystems and stunning natural beauty.
