Apparently you've read a case study on Australia, right?
The natural environment (climate, land and water forms, indigenous plants and animals), history, and how the people and the country make money help people decide where to live.
Can you think of any other things that influence where people live?

like how many people live there, if there's not alot of people who live there, or if its crowded.

Money! Money! Money!
Jobs! Jobs! Jobs!
The major reason that people live in cities is for jobs. Rural areas have few jobs, except for farming. In Australia, as in many countries, very few people still can make a living on small family farms. Small towns typically have few good-paying jobs.
A few people also live in cities because of better schools and medical care, as well as the entertainment facilities.
