Most of the growth and development of Australia occurred during the reign of Queen Victoria in the 19th Century. Given the length of her rule, there are an abnormal number of things in Australia named after her. There are two states (Victoria and Queensland), rivers, mountains, lakes, and almost anything which be named after a person has been affixed with “Victoria” or “Queen”.
