    Most of Australia’s landscape is stark, and the climate is harsh. Sustained weathering has resulted in the formation of abundant iron oxides in the rocks and dust, giving the Australian landscape its distinctive red colour.

    The landscape isalso remarkably flat and as a result many of the major rivers are slow flowing. But you can see from the patterns and some growing shrubs where the water still tries to flows below ground.
