Regions[edit]

The Queensland article could seriously use a complete set of regions covering the entire state, at the moment there are just a few regions covering a scattering of the state. I'm listing it on Wikitravel:Articles needing attention. Hypatia 20:12, 19 Jun 2005 (EDT)

City/Town lists[edit]

Could someone edit the City/Town lists a bit? I don't have enough information to do the reduction, but I think the lists are a little to long at the moment... Jamboo 09:02, 22 March 2008 (EDT)

Until these towns are moved to their respective region pages, I'll keep the list here, to prevent them being lost in the system.

Do vs Destinations[edit]

We should make sure that the Do section, covers thigns to do, and isn't just a repeat of the destinations section of the article. --Inas 20:33, 9 March 2009 (EDT)

Tourism Queensland[edit]

Hi,

My name is Kane, I am working with Tourism Queensland to add further detail to this Queensland Wikitravel page. Over the next week or so I will be editing and adding new content to this page.

If anyone has any questions, suggestions or comments about what we are doing, please don't hesitate to contact us through this Talk page.

Thanks,

Kane

Queensland Map[edit]

Hi All,

Would anyone be interested in helping to create a Queensland Map with colour coded regions?

Thanks in advance.

I'm sure someone will step up, if you could just provide an outline with the borders of the different regions - in google maps, in an already existing image somewhere, or just a rough sketch in whatever graphics software you are familiar with. It's a pretty easy job, once that is taken care of. --Stefan (sertmann) talk 13:00, 6 December 2009 (EST)

Thanks for the reply Stefan,

Here is a outline of the regions in Queensland as provided by Tourism Queensland.

Cities and OD's[edit]

Are out of control. Nine of each please! I guess this is related to the point above about sub-regionalising Queensland. I will draw the map, if someone undertakes to do sub-regionalisation donkey work. --Burmesedays 10:06, 19 February 2010 (EST)

There is a map that has been uploaded here, although it is not clear that the Queensland Tourism Authority has indeed agree to release it into the Public Domain. --Peter Talk 13:31, 19 February 2010 (EST)
Good one. And of all people, the Queensland Polcie Dept has an interesting map here. I quite like some of that division. I have travelled around Queensland twice but cannot pretend I am any sort of expert. Referencing the police map, I am thinking something like:
  • Far North as it is (maybe called Cape York Peninsula)
  • Northern and Central merged and then divided with a north/south running line into a Coastal region (Central Coast?) and a Hinterland region. The Great Dividing Range might work very well as the defining border.
  • Southern Region as is but it needs a name.
  • The 3 small (but heavily populated) southern coastal regions combined split into two - Greater Brisbane and Gold Coast. Or does it need 3 with a Sunshine Coast (north of Brisbane) region as well?
  • Great Barrier Reef for all offshore islands.
That would make 7 or 8 regions. Please, let's have some local Australian input.--Burmesedays 21:34, 19 February 2010 (EST)

Regioning Queensland[edit]

Could you please discuss the strategy for regions. Do you intend changing all the existing region articles to match the Queensland tourism ones? --inas 21:20, 24 February 2010 (EST)

Err.. who is that question directed at? I am keen to draw a Wkitravel style map once we have some sensible regions.--Burmesedays 23:04, 24 February 2010 (EST)
It is addressed to whoever defined a full set of regions, and the put a copy of the Queensland tourism map in the article, and set up all the regions in this article. Currently, these aren't agreed, and they point to many articles that aren't regions, and ignore many that are. Not that I would object if there were consensus to use these regions, but having just spent a while putting all the Queensland articles into regions, I didn't want to do the task again for a new set of regions, unless the strategy was apparent, and the change should be coordinated. --inas 23:38, 24 February 2010 (EST)
It is a mess at the moment agreed. And way too many regions with a map which looks like a copyvio.--Burmesedays 05:22, 3 March 2010 (EST)
Also what is the score with the map? It appears to be owned by Tourism Queensland, but has been uploaded here as a public domain image. Seems a bit unlikely. Before it is vfd'd anything to say?--Burmesedays 05:36, 3 March 2010 (EST)
