Queensland is a state of Australia, located in the northeastern part of the country. It is the second largest state by area and the third largest state by population. Queensland is often nicknamed the Sunshine State since it enjoys warm weather and a sizable portion of the state is located in the tropics. Queensland's primary industry is tourism due to its proximity to the Great Barrier Reef and its world-class beaches. Queensland is home to such cities as Brisbane and Cairns and such attractions as the Atherton Tablelands, the Sunshine Coast, the Gold Coast, the Great Dividing Range, Cape Tribulation, and Daintree National Park.
