Farm water resources of South-east Australia
Authors: Ayers, H. D.
Description: The climate of the region is one of the most pleasant in the world, being likened to Southern California or the French Riviera. Snow occurs in the Highlands where elevations of 3000 to 4000 feet occur. This includes the Snowy Mountains and the Highlands of Tasmania. Rainfall gradually diminishes from the coast inland, except where orographic influences prevail as they do along much of the east coast. The coast experiences an annual rainfall of 40 to 60 inches increasing to 80 inches at the higher elevations. West of the great divide there is a gradual diminution of annual rainfall on the western slopes, to about 8 inches in the Northwest corner of New South Wales.
