It has very useful histories and maps of each colony as seen in the perspective of 1900. In its role as an almanac it contains extensive details of timetables and statistics such as:
 - Steaming time - Australian coast
 - Police Courts
 - Public Holidays in England
 - Taxes
 - Mohammedan Calendar
 - Seas Distances
 - Newspapers for Colonies as published in London
 - Populations of Great Britain
 - Railway Distances
 - Comparative Statistics of the Australasia Colonies for 1897 and 1898

This Handbook is effectively an almanac, as these are regular publications that contain information for the community and data including astronomical records, statistics such as tide time, eclipses, church festivals, timelines and much more.

This handbook is an immense reference book to the world of our ancestors over 100 years ago.
