  2. 2. Water management Australia is a country with poor water supply, and where the waterway network is underdeveloped and unevenly spread. Landlocked areas cover 60% of the country. In spite of the enormity of Australia the majority of rivers are no longer than 1000 km. Only six rivers are longer than 1000 km. The Indian Ocean catchment area is 30%, and the Pacific Ocean catchment area is 9% only.
  3. 3. Rain Precipitation per year is diversified. Summer precipitation are common in the north of the continent. In the south, winter falls are predominant. Precipitation internally is scant. The typical feature of precipitation in Australia is its irregularity. The precipitation is usually fierce, usually exceeding the disposable average sum of downfalls. Australia is often hit by floods and tropical cyclones.
  4. 4. Rivers The highest concentration of rivers located in the eastern part of the country where the largest river system in Australia is. The system of these rivers covers an area of about one million square kilometers. The largest river is​​ the Darling. A dense network of rivers is located on the eastern tip of Australia. There is a relatively dense network of rivers in the west of the country, but these merely periodic rivers.
  5. 5. Lakes Australia has a large number of lakes. However, the vast majority of them are landlocked. The biggest number of these lake are found in the southern part of the Central Depression. Number of lakes depends heavily on the size of the precipitation. During sporadic long-lasting downpours almost the entire central Australia becomes a huge lake.
