The Great Dividing Range

The Great Dividing Range, or the Eastern Highlands, is Australia's most substantial mountain range and the third longest land-based range in the world. The range stretches more than 3,500 kilometres (2,175 mi) off the northeastern tip of Queensland, running the entire length of the eastern coastline through New South Wales, then into Victoria where it turns west, before finally fading into the central plain in western Victoria.
