The state that I call home, Queensland, is the second largest in Australia,covers an area of 1,852,642 km2 and is situated on the Coral Sea to the north and Pacific Ocean to the east.
It is also a state of contrasts with incredible beaches along its coastline; the Great Dividing Range with lush rainforests and waterfalls; the wondrous Daintree Forest; the stunning islands of the Great Barrier Reef; the Whitsunday Islands; the dry and desolate Outback; and the tropical Savannah land of the Gulf country.
During my travels I have covered a large section of Queensland, excluding parts of the Outback, the very Far North and the Gulf Country. Australia is such a vast place that it seems an impossible feat to see all of it during your lifetime. However, this is not from want of trying!
I have compiled an A to Z list of some of the incredible places in Queensland that I have visited and here they are:
It is no secret that I’m proud of the state I live in. Aptly called the ‘Sunshine State’ because of its large number of sunny days, especially throughout the winter months. But more than that I adore the ‘green and the gold’ – the contrast between the golden sandy beaches and the lush greenery in the hinterlands and tropical rainforests. Give me Queensland anyday!!
