The Goldfields of Queensland

Queensland Goldfields Cover a Vast Area:

Queensland goldfields have contributed significantly to the wealth of the Australian Nation which has been won from a multitude of goldfields spread far and wide across the State.

Ranging from the Far North to the Southern regions of the State of Queensland these gold producing areas consist of some of the better known goldfields, including many which while the gold is virtually gone, are still significant communities today.

Also there are the many lesser goldfields that have made significant contributions to the economy in the past, and which have now been long forgotten, and there are also many others that most prospectors have probably never even heard of, all of which are collectively spread over a vast area of the Queensland State, and which in total cover an estimated area of some 115,300 square kilometers.

The following listing is of some of the areas where gold has been found in the years gone by, including many where gold may still be found to this day by using modern prospecting equipment and methods.
