Queensland Trivia Questions

1. One of the many attractions on the Gold Coast is its world-famous wildlife sanctuary. What is its name?

From Quiz
Queensland's Wonderful Gold Coast

Answer: Currumbin

Founded in 1947, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is home to many different native Australian species, including birds, mammals, and reptiles. Every day, in the morning and the afternoon, the public are invited to help feed wild rainbow lorikeets in an event that is free to attend and highly popular. Visitors can also pay to experience close encounters with wildlife, such as crocodile feeding (no, the visitors are not fed to the crocs), dingo walks, and being photographed with koalas.

2. Brisbane, rather unsurprisingly, is located on which river?

From Quiz Beautiful Brisbane

Answer: Brisbane

The Brisbane River is the longest river in the south east of the large state of Queensland. This lovely old river is rather slow moving as it meanders its way down to the sea. Unless it's in flood of course. Then it's a thing of terror. The Brissy river, as it is fondly named by the locals, was once noted for its gracious scenery, its fish and the beautiful wild birds that inhabited its banks. Although the scenery and the birds still exist, the fish are possibly gasping for breath by now. The waters aren't exactly blue and pristine looking. It's a capital city though, and all that entails. Catamarans, barges and ferries ply its length on a regular basis, and water skiers delight in its non-threatening waters. The odd shark or two still ventures up its length now and then as well.

3. What is the highest point in Brisbane?

From Quiz Brisbane: World City

Answer: Mount Coot-tha

Mount Coot-tha stands 287 metres above sea level, and on a clear day you can see all the way to Moreton Bay, the mouth of the Brisbane River. Mount Coot-tha derives its name from ku-ta, the local aboriginal term for 'place of honey'.

4. This regional city is home to the Royal Australian Air Force's largest operational base.

7. Where will you find Tabletop Mountain?

From Quiz Places in Queensland

Answer: Toowoomba

Surfers Paradise is the entertainment and tourist hub of the Gold Coast that provides access to the famous public beaches, as well as nightclubs, hotels, shopping, and many other attractions. The beach is actually one long continuous strip that runs from Main Beach, just north of Surfers Paradise, to Coolangatta, which is the southernmost suburb, buffering the New South Wales border, and is where the Gold Coast airport is located. Southport is the central business district of the Gold Coast.

12. What is the name of the river which flows through Brisbane?

From Quiz Brisbane: World City

17. What is the name of the beautiful tablelands just half an hour's drive from Cairns?

From Quiz Tropical North Queensland

Answer: Atherton Tablelands

The Atherton Tablelands are a wonderful place to visit and can be cooler than the coast due to their altitude. There you can see many waterfalls, green farmlands and beautiful crater lakes.

Sea World is an award-winning marine park with exhibits ranging from polar bears through to dolphins.

22. Ipswich in Queensland was known as Coodjirar in one of the local Aboriginal languages, which has the floral meaning of "the place of the ___"?

From Quiz Ipswich, Queensland

Answer: Red stemmed gum

The red stemmed gum, which is also known as the Sydney red gum, rusty gum or smooth-barked apple, grows proficiently along the banks of the river running through the city of Ipswich. The name Coodjirar comes from the local Yugarabul language (also known as Ugarapul), one of the two main Aboriginal languages of south-east Queensland. The other is Jagara, also known as Jagera and Yagara. Apart from the Ipswich City Council boundaries, the region for this language also extends to Scenic Rim Regional Council and the Brisbane City Council. The first European to explore the Ipswich area was Captain Patrick Logan in 1826. Logan was the commander of the Moreton Bay penal colony at the time. The settlement was established a year later with the name Limestone Hills, which would be changed to Ipswich, after the town in England, in 1843.

23. Name the major highway that runs through Gordonvale. It is 1800km long and joins Brisbane in the south with Cairns in the north?

From Quiz Gordonvale, Queensland, Australia

Answer: The Bruce Highway

The Gillies Highway also starts in Gordonvale it connects with the Artherton Tablelands in the west?

24. The Cavill St. Mall, located in the heart of Surfers Paradise, contains a number of the suburb's tourist attractions. Among these is the "Ripley's Believe It or Not!" museum that bills itself as what kind of venue?

From Quiz Queensland's Wonderful Gold Coast

Answer: Odditorium

I've never heard of any venues named after the three other answers, but if one ever opens, I want credit for coming up with the idea! Ripley's museum contains many weird and wonderful exhibits, such as real shrunken heads, and hands-on interactive galleries.

25. On which popular hill, situated in the middle of Brisbane, are the main television towers located?

From Quiz Beautiful Brisbane

Answer: Mount Coot-tha

Though given the honorary title of a mountain, Mount Coot-tha is more of a hill really. You can easily drive to the top, or ride a pushbike if you're feeling energetic. It only rises 287 metres above sea level, which, for some peculiar reason, always embarrasses me if I have to give its height, BUT there's a wonderful advantage to its stubbiness. There are glorious views right out over Brisbane, far more intimate than those of a much taller mountain - and at night, that view all over the glittering wonderland below, is just breathtaking. Mount Coot-tha is known for its parks, the odd waterfall or two, and its television and radio towers.

26. Brisbane covers an area of approximately 1482 square kilometers, which is about the same size as which populous European city?

From Quiz Brisbane: World City

Answer: Milan, Italy

Milan, Italy covers a slightly smaller area of 1464 square kilometers. In 2016, however, it had a population almost double that of Brisbane at almost 4 million people.

27. The second of our Indooroopilly bridges carries rail traffic and was constructed as part of the quadruplication of the Ipswich line between Roma Street and Corinda. By what name is this bridge known?

From Quiz Brisbane's Burgeoning Bridges

Answer: The bridge has no official name

Believe it or not, the bridge has no official name! Queensland Rail (QR), who operates the bridge, states that they call it the 'Indooroopilly Rail Bridge'. However, as stated above, the bridge was never officially named when it opened in June 1958. During construction, QR simply referred to it as the 'new bridge'. As this is a contentious local issue, my source (which cites the Lord Mayor's office and QR on the subject) is as follows: Of the other choices, the Bremer Bridge does not exist, however, its name is a corruption of Ipswich's Bremer River Bridge. The Bremer River flows into the Brisbane River at a junction named Barella Point, which is upstream from the first bridge in this quiz. The Westgate Bridge is located in Melbourne, and was the site of a bridge collapse during construction in 1970, killing 35 workers. The Pamphlett Bridge crosses Oxley Creek, a tributary of the Brisbane River, in the suburb of Tennyson.

28. With a population of around 20,000 this town can lay claim to being the childhood home of both Patrick Rafter and Greg Norman.

From Quiz Queensland Towns

Answer: Mt Isa

Mount Isa is among the world's largest cities in the world by area, as an example, the town of Camooweal located 188km to the west is actually a suburb of the city. Mount Isa is also of course famous for its vast mineral deposits of silver, lead, copper and zinc and associated mining operations.

29. What was the population of Queensland at the end of December 2005?

From Quiz The Sunshine State - Queensland

Answer: 4 million

The population was officially declared four million on December 9, 2005. It is believed that by 2051, Queensland's population will be the second largest in Australia, second to New South Wales.

30. Popular with joggers and bike riders, this mountain is also home to Brisbane's television stations. What is the name of the mountain?

From Quiz The Best of Brisbane

Answer: Mt Coot-tha

Mount Coot-tha is home to some wonderful picnic areas and walking trails. For the very fittest, cycling or jogging up the mountain is always a great challenge!
