If you are researching ancestors who were stockowners in Australia, the Pastoral
Directories are a great resource. This compendium contains facsimiles of the
years 1913, 1923, 1925, 1931, and 1954.
Australian Pastoral Directories were published yearly, and each edition lists
thousands of stockowners and agents for most states in Australia. The
information listed contains the name of the station and the owner, however the
larger states (New South Wales and Queensland) contain more detail including
numbers of cattle and sheep.
A great resource for finding information on our forbears on the land at
different stages in the past.
Each year is also available separately:
Australian Pastoral Directory 1913
Australian Pastoral Directory 1923
Australian Pastoral Directory 1925
Australian Pastoral Directory 1931
Australian Pastoral Directory 1954
