The deserts of Australia cover 1,371,000 square kilometres (529,000 sq mi), or 18% of the Australian mainland. The largest of the landform types covering Australia, deserts – and their arid climatic conditions – are found primarily in the western plateau and interior lowlands of the country.
Deserts are not necessarily completely devoid of vegetation, but have large areas where vegetation is very limited in height or extent.

Great Victoria Desert 
Gibson Desert 
Desert group 
- Western Desert – is a grouping of the Gibson Desert, the Great Sandy Desert and Little Sandy Desert.
Climate issues 
Australia's climate is mostly determined by the hot, sinking air of the subtropical high pressure belt. Dry conditions are associated with an El Niño–Southern Oscillation in Australia. Vegetation in arid areas is primarily dependent upon soil type.
Ecological issues 
Numerous introduced species have effect on the fauna and flora of desert regions.
Also un-controlled access to more sensitive areas by four-wheel drive vehicles can be an issue.
