This important and rare 19th century Queensland gazetteer is now offered as an inexpensive and searchable CD. It contains 'the most recent and accurate information on every place in the colony' in 1876 - a wealth of information for historians and genealogists. It will also interest the general reader with its many insights into the 19th Century Queensland and several thousand localities. There are entries for towns and villages, lakes, rivers and creeks, islands, bays, hills and mountains, runs and other localities and features. It often gives latitude and longitude, populations, proximity to other towns, local industries, services such as coach and mail runs, hotels, churches, schools and much more.

After the main Gazetteer there is a 66 page listing of approximately 3000 runs, with the pastoral districts in which they are situated, the names of their lessees, and the next post towns. A fuller description is given of those runs in the settled districts.
