Queensland

If you love beautiful weather…Queensland is for you.  With beaches, surf, the Great Barrier Reef, the outback, and abundant employment through the bouyant mining sector, Queensland is truly a great place to make your home in Australia.

Brisbane is the capital and is located in the Southeast corner, where the weather is mildest.  Further north are the cities of Caloundra, Rockhampton, Mackay, Townsville and Cairns, while South lies the famous Gold Coast.  If you prefer a more temperate climate, wine and cheese, Stanthorpe,  in the Granite Belt, is for you.  And for the adventurous, Mt Isa and Emerald are large mining towns located in the West.

Tourism, mining and agriculture are the dominant economies.
