Information Sources


This series consists of estate maps which were published by the Lands Department Survey Branch and subsequent agencies to advertise land offered for sale or lease as town and suburban allotments, pastoral holdings or for agricultural selection. Some of the portions offered in the 1930s were reserved for landless men, and in the 1950s for discharged soldiers. Some Brigalow land selection was part of the Fitzroy Basin Land Development Scheme of the 1960s and 1970s.

Included on each of the maps are sketch maps and information about the estate and its locality, and the place and date of the auction or sale. For promotional impact, various text styles are used as well as colourful drawings and photographs.
