'The Roads of Queensland' was published in 1913 as a guide for travellers, tourists, motorists, drovers and land seekers to this state. The introduction in this book says that it is the the only work of its kind in being so comprehensive. The compilers devoted five years to the production of it, in order to make the details as accurate as possible and up to date at the time of publications. It contains a large amount of fascinating information giving insight into the period. You will information on the pastoral, agricultural, dairying, mining and sawmilling industries, as well as the various products of each district, the populations of all localities, the nature of the road-beds, whether the river and creek crossings are good or bad, where water can be found, the accommodation and other services in each town. Even where the telegraphic and telephonic stations were, and the coach routes, tourist trips, and various stock stations.
