Queensland Disability Employment Statistics

The economy of Queensland has enjoyed a boom in both mining and tourism in the last twenty years. An influx of interstate and overseas migrants, as well as large amounts of federal government investment, have increased mining of large mineral deposits and expanded the state’s aerospace sector. The main industries in Queensland include pineapples, bananas, peanuts, a number of tropical and temperate fruits and vegetables, wineries, grain crops, cotton, cattle, wool, sugar cane, and mining. The mining industry in Queensland produces coal, silver, gold, bauxite, zinc, lead, and copper. Refineries for sugar cane and copper are located along the eastern coastline.
