Radar coverage in Australia is only available close to major cities i.e Melbourne/Brisbane/Perth/Sydney/Adelaide/Darwin/Cairns etc. Beyond these areas a/c must rely on procedural methods for traffic seperation i.e waypoint reporting. Most of WA/NT/QLD/SA is outside radar coverage and outside VHF coverage so they use HF.
