This series of parish maps were produced by the Survey Office for sale and distribution. Details featured on these maps include parishes, property boundaries (including type of holding eg. freehold or leasehold), lessee or title holder's name, type of lease (eg. prickly pear selection, pastoral holding, miners' homestead, settlement farm or non-competitive), real property information (eg. subdivision, re-subdivision, section and lot numbers), reserves, roads, stock routes, trigonometrical and astronomical stations, and public buildings. In addition, each map provides a key to adjoining 40 and 20 chain maps.
Maps are drawn on a scale of 40 chains to an inch.
