In the case of habiter the preposition depends on whether you refer to a country, a province or a city.
J'habite en Australie.J'habite dans le Yorkshire.J'habite à Paris.
But in the case of venir, it is always de: Je viens d'Adelaide.
And then there is the gender of the country. Most countries are feminine and use "en" with habiter. But some are masculine and require à: J'habite aux États Unis.
