The state’s overall territory is 1 722 000 sq km which is 22,5% of the continent’s territory. Queensland is bounded by New South Wales on the south, South Australia on the south-west, by the Northern Territory on the west, by the Gulf of Carpentaria, Torres Strait and the Coral Sea in the north, and the South Pacific Ocean in the east. Its coastline is 7400km long.

 

Most parts of the state are represented by planes, sharp, high relief on the east and north-west and salt flats meeting the coast on the north. There are uplands on the north-west and the land on the east rises to meet the Great Dividing Range. There are also islands beyond which there is the Great Barrier Reef – 2000km of coral formations.
