Central Queensland has the greatest variety of Australiana in the smallest area. The Great Barrier Reef, coral islands, volcanic coastal ranges, coastal plains, sandstone ranges, the Great Dividing Range at its furthermost point from the coast, and then beyond the Great Divide into the Great Artesian Basin, offer a variety offered nowhere else. This is reflected in the diversity of scenic attractions in a tropical paradise, against a background of mining, gem mining, a winery at Roma, sugar cane, plus National Parks on the coastal islands, the Reef, the coastal ranges, the inland sandstone ranges, the plains and the Great Divide and beyond. The flora of this unique area is presented in these images, its variety reflecting the diversity of the habitats.
