[edit] Overview

Queensland is bordered in the south by New South Wales and in the west by Northern Territory, while South Australia cuts a small corner into the state. Queensland includes the Great Barrier Reef and has some species in common with New Guinea due to the short geographic distance from Cape York. It is the second-largest state in Australia and has the greatest biodiversity, with over 630 species of bird recorded, 22 of them being endemic.
