Constitution of Queensland

The Constitution of Queensland is the constitution of the Australian state of Queensland. As with the other constitutions of Australian states and territories, it is a written constitution influenced by the Westminster system and Australia's federal system of government.

In 1901, the six Australian colonies, including Queensland, federated to form Commonwealth of Australia which is constituted by the Australian Constitution. From that time onward, Queensland ceded the power to make laws relating to certain matters to the federal government.
