Queensland Places

This sites includes 1100+ entries on settlements in Queensland that now have or once had populations of 500 or more. The entries include cities, towns, villages and suburbs. Some of the entries are on gold rush or other mining towns where the population proved quite short-lived, from Ravenshoe to the Palmer River. Others are on settlements where the population has varied remarkably over time, and in some cases gone up rapidly, gone down rapidly, and then increased again, as in the case of Port Douglas and Cooktown. Entries typically  include historical description, details of population changes, historical images from  private and other collections, and recommendations for further reading. New
