Abstract Historians, journalists and political scientists provide diverse bodies of literature that explore identity and social and political behaviour in Queensland. One commonly held view is that immigration and patterns of settlement, together with climate and topography, have affected economic and political development and the character of Queenslanders. Another frequently expressed opinion is that Queenslanders 'because of some political, social and psychological disposition are distinctive'. Underpinning these perceptions are assertions that, within the Australian context, Queensland is different and Queenslanders either believe or behave differently in some fundamental and critical way leading to 'Them' and 'Us' perceptions. Cultural reasoning is one term that embraces attempts to link identity and difference to events and developments in Queensland. The high profiles of some advocates and its widespread acceptance lend authority to the concept. This paper classifies Queensland cultural reasoning and outlines its origins and development.
