Its not that simple.
You say you visited Queensland. Queensland is HUGE! You'd be hard pushed to travel tip to tail in a day. And its very diverse. South east and Brisbane are more cosmopolitan,inland is just a word apart, far north is hot steamy humid and very different to the south east. And the its in the middle, small town stuff, coal towns, all different. Which bit did you visit and for how long? Where could you get work?
The same for New South Wales - Sydney, smaller cities like Newcastle, small inland towns - its similar because its Australia, but each area is still different.
You need to tell us what you want from Australia, and then people can give you more of an idea where to find it.

If you go for an NSW state sponsored visa, you would have to agree to live and work in the state for 2 years.

Whilst in the past this has been seen to be a moral obligation, it is possible that this is changing.

Again its a huge State and will have good, bad and indifferent schools. Should we assume you are looking at northern NSW? Near the Queensland border, if you want to be near the Gold Coast?
Are you looking for somewhere with the theme park/playground side of the Gold Coast, or more the beach/coffee shop angle?

What skills do you and your wife have? What jobs will you be looking for? NNSW is very different to SEQLD. More small town laid back vibe and therefore less chance of local jobs. Many people who live in NNSW work on the Gold Coast, some even commute up to Brisbane - can't imagine why, a three+ hour commute a day sounds like my idea of hell but people do it. You wouldn't be in that position. If you are sponsored by NSW you have to work in NSW.
