Overview

Extensively researched and generously illustrated, this examination considers all aspects of a dynamic state renowned for its extraordinary, diverse landscapes, wealth of intellectual and physical resources, and a population that appreciates its unique lifestyle. Commissioned by the government to commemorate the 150th anniversary of its establishment as a state, this comprehensive guide captures the progress that has marked Queensland’s past and defined its present—from the state’s first peoples and early colonial ambitions to the impact of two world wars and the arrival of international events, such as the Commonwealth Games—to reveal the everyday life of its people and the significant moments of its history.
