Queensland Decentralisation – “Joh: The Life and Political Adventures of Johannes Bjelke-Petersen”, Hugh Lunn

October 4th, 2012 · No Comments · Policy, Queensland

There are special needs in Queensland, and many of these arise from the problems of decentralisation. Ten of Australia’s twenty-four most populous cities are in this state, and more people live outside Brisbane in Queensland than live in the whole of South Australia or Western Australia (1,250,000 in 1977). It is true that Western Australia is much more vast, but it’s largely empty. Queensland on the other hand is crisscrossed by roads, railways, and air routes.
