“Beautiful one day…Perfect the next”.
If you love beautiful weather…Queensland is for you. With beaches, surf, the Great Barrier Reef, the outback, and abundant employment through the bouyant mining sector, Queensland is truly a great place to make your home in Australia.
Brisbane is the capital and is located in the Southeast corner, where the weather is mildest. Further north are the cities of Caloundra, Rockhampton, Mackay, Townsville and Cairns, while South lies the famous Gold Coast. If you prefer a more temperate climate, wine and cheese, Stanthorpe, in the Granite Belt, is for you. And for the adventurous, Mt Isa and Emerald are large mining towns located in the West.
Tourism, mining and agriculture are the dominant economies.
Most of Queensland – all except Brisbane and the Gold Coast – is eligible for employer nomination to a Visa under Subclass 187 (Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme). And the Queensland Government will sponsor many occupations for Skilled (Sponsored) Visas under Subclass 190 and 489.
