Description
ESTABLISHMENT:
The Land Board constituted under the Crown Lands Act 1884 served as a judiciary and administrative agency. It was empowered to hold courts and to arbitrate on any questions arising from the administration of the 1884 Act. In 1898 its functions were taken over by the Land Court, constituted under the Land Act 1897. The Land Court is an independent judicial tribunal and holds sittings in Brisbane and principal country towns and smaller centres where suitable facilities are available. The Land Court, Caboolture, was established when the Act came into effect on 1 Mar 1898.

FUNCTIONS:
From its inception until 1944, the Land Court's principal role was that of judicially arbitrating between the Minister and the Crown's lessees in rental, compensation, value of improvements and other matters affecting the Crown leasehold system., as well as determining compensation for compulsory resumption of freehold land pursuant to the provision of the Public Works Land Resumption Acts and subsequent compulsory acquisition legislation.

With the proclamation of the Valuation of Land Act 1944, the Land Court's jurisdiction included the hearing and determination of appeal against valuations for rating and taxing purposes.
