The most northern state on Australia’s eastern coast, Queensland covers 1,852,000 square kilometers, an enormous area and includes tropical and sub-tropical climates. It reaches from the Coral Sea in the east and includes its world renown coral reefs, world heritage ancient rainforests, mountains and coastal areas; and in the west, deserts and savanna.

It has enormous mineral and agricultural wealth and is a major international tourist destination.

Despite its enormous land area, the population is around 5.2 million and mostly concentrated in the southern coastal areas and the capital, Brisbane.
