North Queensland

North Queensland or the Northern Region is the northern part of the state of Queensland in Australia that lies just south of Far North Queensland. Queensland is a massive state, larger than many countries, and the tropical northern part of it has been historically remote and undeveloped, resulting in a distinctive regional character and identity.

Townsville is the largest urban centre in North Queensland, leading it to be regarded as an unofficial capital. The region has a population of 231,628 and covers 80,041.5 km².

Famous quotes containing the word north:

    Ah, how shall you know the dreary sorrow at the North Gate,
    With Li Po’s name forgotten,
    And we guardsmen fed to the tigers.
    Li Po (701–762)
