Don't you come in here waving those long words around
We have mountains, sort of
Australia is like the northern half of Africa. One big ass pile of sand. And with the trade winds flowing the wrong direction (pre-se), you don't get any precipitation except for along some portions of the coast....largely in partial to there being no significant mountains to cause the atmosphere to lift and rain on you (re: Rocky Mountains, Alps, Andes, etc...).
