There are thousands of towns throughout Australia. Like cities in Australia, they are concentrated near the coast and within the fertile eastern seaboard. There are less towns the more you head inland toward the vast Australian Outback.
Towns that do exist in the Outback are often very isolated and supplies are normally trucked in by road trains, (very long road trucks). The iconic School of the Air use to deliver lessons to children living in isolated townships via short-wave radio. These days children receive their school lessons over the Internet and are connected to teachers from bigger towns.
