Victoria is the most southern state of mainland Australia. Weather patterns in Victoria are incredibly varied and often extreme. Highest summer records have show temperatures top 45 degrees and winters plummet below -11 degrees in the south. Accompanying the weather patterns are vastly varied environments. Victoria has rich alpine ranges, semi-arid deserts, coastal landscapes, sweeping grasslands and dense forests all contributing to the wealth of habitats and environments. As a result of all of this, the wildlife in Victoria have evolved to combat these harsh conditions and flourish in the contrasting environments.
