Queensland is the second-largest state of Australia. It occupies nearly a quarter of the continent. The state is nearly seven times larger than the United Kingdom. More than twice the size of Texas in the United States. Queensland has the most diverse animal population of any state because of its wide range of habitats and its position on migration routes. Beaches and tropical islands make it a famous destination. With over 200 national parks, the state is home to lush mountainous rainforest, bushland, creeks, and flat tablelands ideal for farming.
These fascinating historical photos show what Queensland looked like in the 1930s. It was a time of great unemployment and the Great Depression. Labor Party leaders tried to stimulate the economy through large capital improvement projects after the government could not stem the tide of the depression. By 1934, the worst of the depression had passed, and many social services that had been suspended during that time had been reinstituted.
