Queensland is a small community located just 54 km (33.6 mi.) west of Halifax. Initially, Queensland was known as North Shore, but in 1901, in honour of Queen Victoria's Jubilee, the community agreed to officially change its name to Queensland. In 1814, John F. Slaunwhite first settled on the land, along with Jacob Harnish, John Dorey and John Brigley.

A popular hotspot for tourists is Queensland Beach Provincial Park, which offers visitors a place to go for a swim and soak up the sun in summer months. Queensland Beach is one of the busiest beaches in Nova Scotia, and the water temperature is often swimmable do to the fact the area is sheltered from St. Margaret's Bay. Queensland is conveniently located along Highway 103.

Queensland accommodations include bed and breakfasts, inns and cottages.
