such variation


Based on the threads about' such', the word ' such' seems to be a determiner that can be used to refer to information that just mentioned. Then, can I apply the same explanation to the following sentence which includes such? I can't understand how ' such ' is used there and why' such' should be put there. Need your explanation.

In Australia, where there has not been enough time for changes to bring about such regional variation, it is almost impossible to tell where someone comes from at all although very small differences are now beginning to appear. ( I found this sentence while reading an article titled language vareity )
