Queensland is a state in northeastern Australia, famous for natural wonders such as the Great Barrier Reef, Daintree National Park, and Fraser Island. With just short of 5 million inhabitants, most of them in South East Queensland, in or around the capital Brisbane and the Gold Coast resort city, much of the state is uninhabited or very sparsely populated.

Climate shifts within Queensland; the inland west is desert, the north is tropical with a wet and a dry season, and the south-east is subtropical. In the southern winter, it is a popular getaway for Australians living in the south.

Alongside one of the natural wonders of the world in the Great Barrier Reef, Queensland and the Northern Territory are home to some incredible wonders in themselves. The Daintree National Park, Gondwana Rainforests of Australia, the world heritage listed Fraser Island, Carnarvon National Park, Glen Helen Gorge, Uluru, are but just a few of the magnificent places on offer here.

If you get a chance, northern Australia as a whole is not a place you should skip visiting.
