Geography and climateMost of the interior of Australia is arid or semi-arid, although the edges of the continent include regions of tropical and temperate rainforest.
The wetter parts of Australia, especially along the north and east coasts, have a climate with ample rainfall, suitable for growing tea. Small quantities of tea are grown in Murwillumbah on the eastern coast, and farther inland, near Wangaratta.
Australia also produces herbs important in herbal teas. Queensland, the island off the southeast of the continent and part of the country, is the origin of lemon myrtle and the main location where it is grown.
