Information Sources


This series consists of a collection of Queensland state electoral district atlases and maps. The series brings together electoral district atlases and maps which were originally published with the authority of the Department of Justice, the State Electoral Office or previous agencies responsible for state elections, but were obtained by Queensland State Archives from various sources.

The boundaries and names of electoral districts are established and altered by Acts of Parliament. This series includes collections of maps which have been bound together, by the publisher or other agencies, as atlases of the electoral districts created under a particular electoral act, for example "The Electoral Districts Act of 1910".

To ensure that there is a complete list of all electoral districts created by a particular electoral act, the maps within most atlases in this series have been itemised.

Details on maps include divisional boundaries and gazetted descriptions of district boundaries.
