There are also numerous gorge systems in Northern Australia such as Katherine Gorge that provide some of the best scenery in this part of the country. Outside of Australia and New Zealand, many South Pacific Islands are too small to have inland bodies of water and rivers. They rely on rainfall for drinking water and use generators, wind, and solar, for their energy requirements in the place of hydroelectricity.
