The Great Divide Regions of Australia

"The largest mountain range on the continent"

The region supports agriculture grazing, mixed farming and fruit growing

While the Great Dividing Range makes up most of the 'division' between coastal fringe and the open country plains beyond from Atherton in the Far North Queensland Tropics all the way to the Grampians in Western Victoria, other Mountain ranges also form this 'Divide'. The Adleaid Hills that extend north to the Flinders and the Darling Range in Western Australia also form a demarcation between the caostal plains and the 'wheat belt' beyond.
