Victoria is bordered by South Australia on the west, the Tasman Sea and Bass Straight on the east and south, and New South Wales on the north. The Murray River acts as most of the boundary between New South Wales and Victoria. The Murray River is also the leading river for water within the state, as numerous streams flow from the central highlands in the south into Bass Straight or the Murray River.
Mt. Bogong (1986m) is Victoria's highest peak and lies in the Southern Plains. The plains are largely grass, with scrubby eucalyptuses known as mallee in the northwest. The coast is lined with broken ranges of hills and is irregular, with granitic headlands and landlocked bays, such as Port Phillip, the harbour of Melbourne. More than 80 extinct volcanic peaks are just west of Port Phillip, and basaltic flows mark some of the plains. Victoria is traversed from west to east by an irregular range of mountains, an extension of the Great Dividing Range. The mountains are low in the west, but rise toward the east into the rugged Australian Alps.
