Information Sources


This series was created by the Surveyor General's Office, the Survey Branch and later the Survey Office of the Lands Department. These maps, drawn on a scale of 2 miles to an inch, were originally compiled by T. S. Bailey and lithographed by H. W. Fox, Although sheet 8 was originally printed in 1872, this series was primarily issued to show lands resumed from runs in the Darling Downs unsettled district under the provisions of the Crown Lands Alienation Act 1876.

Details shown on these maps include parish boundaries, townships, land portions and acreage, and rivers and creeks. As the district became increasingly settled maps show greater detail with regards to the number of land subdivisions and property owners. Some sheets have been annotated with electoral division boundaries and population figures.
