Queensland is the second-largest state in Australia. More than 5 million people call this state home, with over half of that population living outside the greater metropolitan area of Brisbane.

Also known as the Sunshine State, Queensland has boundless natural beauty and a lifestyle that’s the envy of the world. It also boasts a robust, competitive and diverse economy.

The state presents strong business and employment opportunities. In the department, we have a network of 11 regional offices that provide strategic support and regional development services throughout Queensland.
