The Magellanic Stream and Leading Arm which originated from the Magellanic Clouds are spectacular gaseous features. They extend for tens of kpcs and span for ~200 degree in the southern sky. The close proximity of the Magellanic Clouds to the Milky Way provides an excellent opportunity to study interacting galaxy system. I will give an overview of the current research studies on the Magellanic Clouds in various wavelengths and present the results of a study of High-Velocity Clouds (HVCs) in the Magellanic Stream and the Leading Arm. The properties of HVCs in the two regions are compared and contrasted in order to study the different mechanisms shaping their structure and evolution. I will also present potential studies using Australia SKA Pathfinder.
