Victoria is located in the southeastern corner of Australia. While it is the smallest Australian mainland state, it is the most densely populated. It is home to Australia’s second largest city, Melbourne, which is its capital. Like Queensland, Victoria was named after Queen Victoria. The region produces a large number of the country’s agriculture from wool to beef to dairy to fruits and vegetables, as well as timber. The state’s electricity comes from one of the largest deposits of brown coal in the world, while half of Australia’s domestic oil production comes from Victoria as well. Not only does Victoria provide all of these things, but it is also a major manufacturing center. Plants in Victoria produce paper, plastics, rubber, automotive, clothing and aluminum, among other things. Melbourne is home to the first set of traffic lights, and the world’s largest stained ­glass ceiling.
