State Library of Queensland - Real Estate Maps

The State Library of Queensland has a unique collection of original maps and plans created by real estate firms. It includes more than 1000 maps from the 1850s to the mid 1900s. The first version of this dataset includes descriptive information and links for 165 digitised maps. The February 2018 version includes descriptions, geographic coordinates and links for 798 digitised maps.

Estate maps can give information about land subdivisions, including how the land was subdivided, when it was first auctioned, who the surveyors were and who sold the land. They are useful for investigating the history of urban land areas.

The maps are predominantly from Brisbane but also cover some regional areas of Queensland such as the Gold and Sunshine Coasts.
