"As Queenslanders we are incredibly lucky to live in a state with more plant and animal species than any other in Australia. In fact, if Queensland was its own country, it would be one of the most species rich in the world. The extraordinary diversity of our species and landscapes means Queensland carries an immense responsibility when it comes to nature conservation.
Our Outback covers almost two thirds of the state. It’s a place of extraordinary nature value and one of the last great regions of nature on Earth. Outback in Focus is about showcasing this natural wonderland and the people working hard to sustain its health. I’m excited to be part of this project and look forward to bringing the incredible natural beauty of the Outback to all Queenslanders.
