Welcome to Queensland Places

This is a website containing all the places in Queensland, including cities, suburbs, towns and villages, that have now or once had a population over 500. (See ABOUT for further information on inclusion criteria, sources, images and copyright.)

You can SEARCH this site using the yellow search box above or BROWSE A-Z or select RANDOM PAGE. You can move back and forward alphabetically through the A-Z headwords using the green arrows at the top of each article. Click on an image to enlarge. Slides will play as a slide show, and you can move through these and the photo galleries using the back and forward arrows on each image.

Because some places are clustered together under BROWSE A-Z we recommend using the SEARCH facility. This will search all instances of the place name in the database, as well as all images and captions. If you do not find the place you are after, you will need to check the spelling or refer to the inclusion criteria in ABOUT. You can also SEARCH the database by any keyword or name. Any errors are notifiable via the CONTACT option to the editors.

New material will be added periodically to the database and census figures updated at each census.

The project was supported by a grant from the Queensland Government
