Queensland, also known as "the Sunshine State, " is an Australian state that stretches across the continent's northeastern region. It is the second-largest Australian state. With over 5.1 million people (as of September 2020), Queensland is also the third-most populated state.

The neighbouring states of Queensland include Northern Territory, New South Wales, and South Australia. Further, the state is bordered by the Pacific Ocean and the Coral Sea. Besides, the Torres Strait, situated in the north, acts as the separator between Papua New Guinea and the Australian mainland.

Brisbane, the capital of Queensland, is the largest city in the state and the third-largest city in Australia. Since the state covers a vast region of the continent, it is home to many beautiful geographical features like mountain ranges, coral reefs, tropical rainforest, rivers, sub-tropical coastal areas, deserts, and sandy beaches.

History of Queensland

The history of Queensland can be dated back to thousands of years. Before Lieutenant James Cook arrived in 1770, the area was first explored by numerous Dutch, French, and Spanish navigators.

During the late 18th century, the continent suffered from a smallpox epidemic, after which the Aboriginal population of the state reduced significantly.

Later, the Frontier War, considered the most bloody one in Australia, erupted between the Aboriginal inhabitants and the settlers in colonial Queensland.

Facilities in Queensland

There are several universities in Queensland, out of which the oldest is the University of Queensland. Further, the state is home to several state and private schools.

Talking about transport, the state is served by many National Highways and the M1 network of freeways, especially in South East Queensland. Other transportation systems include seaports via Port of Brisbane and rail services provided by Pacific National and Queensland Rail.
