Information Sources


This series consists of 2 mile scale maps, created by the Survey Office, showing lands opened for selection in the Darling Downs District under the provisions of the Crown Lands Alienation Act 1876. Details shown on these maps generally include the names of townships and parishes,reserves, and rivers and creeks etc. As the district became increasingly settled the maps show greater detail with regards to the number of land allotments and portions, and names of title holders. Some of these maps have been taken from series created or accumulated by various agencies (eg. Colonial Secretary, Education Department etc.). The original series and provenance is marked where appropriate. This series was commenced by draftsman T. O'Connor and photolithographed at the Lands Department, Brisbane by George Fairman.
