Queensland is rich in diversity. The tropical paradise of the north to the arid western out back.
Queensland really is beautiful one day and perfect the next. Sure there are cyclones, floods and fires to keep everyone on their toes, but at the heart of all existence here is an appreciation of the values of people helping people. All you need to do is get going and get around it, through it and live it. It is so big there is always somewhere appealing to find, even in the middle of a yellow nowhere.
The people are warm and friendly with time to be helpful wherever they can. In fact I would say the people are one of the best features of the great state.
The tropics of the Far North are a lifestyle as well as a great place to visit. Paradise comes into focus here, where locals and visitors live the dream.
In the dry country the people are hardened, but not hard to get along with. Just close the gates and leave the country as you found it and all will be well.
In the busy south a sense of steady pace prevails, allowing the fast living southerners from across the border to find a place to relax while still enjoying terrific facilities.
Some come here to strike it rich in the mines, or try their luck fossicking at The Gemfields west of Rockhampton, or north at Mount Surprise and Mount Garnet, or north of Hughenden. There are many kinds of gems in this state, and you don’t have to dig deep to strike it rich.
Queensland’s beaches are mostly protected by The Great Barrier Reef, making for great beach camping. Where there is surf, the beaches are very popular yet friendly and relaxed.
There are beautiful gorges and rivers to seek out throughout the state, including the dry country, way away from everything and everyone.
Some cattle stations welcome well-mannered visitors to there patch with country hospitality and broad bronzed smiles. Some of natures best will be experienced here.
Queensland truly is a great place to be.
