The recorded audio is missing the word היא.

It's because אוסטרליה ends with ה and יבשת begins with י together these two letters are spoken the same as היא.

Could also be translated as: ...Australia is dry.?

Well, yes, in the sense that the "lands rose up and were separated from the waters", so they're dry. That's where the word for continent comes from, in both Hebrew and English. If you're incontinent, you're wet ;-)
