Directories are an invaluable resource for local, family and social historians as well as for researchers in other fields of Australian history.
 

Directories are an invaluable resource for local, family and social historians as well as for researchers in other fields of Australian history. While they do not give you birth, death and marriage details - the core records for genealogists - they can certainly provide you with information on the region where your ancestors lived, as well as information on their occupation and much more.

This large Wise's directory is comprehensive in its coverage. It contains not just a post office directory, with information on residents together with their address (both street-by-street and alphabetical), but also the following directories:

  • North Brisbane, South Brisbane and nearby areas which are now suburbs of Brisbane
  • Trades
  • Country towns: in general, it gives the location, population, local officials, and the local trades and professions; it also records the average attendance at the school where relevant
  • Station and Stock Owners: a list of the principal stations with the name of district, post town and owner
  • Post and Telegraph
  • Telephone
  • Ports and Harbours
  • Government
  • Accountants
  • Medical
  • Legal
  • Justices of the Peace
  • Ecclesiastical
  • Railway
  • Architects
  • Miscellaneous -– tariff, licenses, and stamp duties
  • Municipal
  • Masonic: lists the lodges, office bearers and meeting days for all the lodges in Queensland
  • Societies and Institutions: lists the societies and the office bearers
  • and hundreds of advertisements
