GLENELG RIVERS 1839-1866 The surveying of major rivers in Victoria was commenced soon after the establishment of the Melbourne Survey Office to provide basic information about the physical geography of the new colony. Information produced by these surveys was very detailed and the resultant plans are extremely useful in tracing the movements of river channels since European settlement. Early pastoral settlements are sometimes plotted on these plans. This is a sub collection from VPRS 8168 Historic Plan Collection.

MS MISCELLANEOUS 1860 - 1937 M/A, D, BO, BU, C, DEF, F, I, L, M, T, U, W, X. A sub collection of VPRS 8168 Historic Plan Collection. This grouping contains a number of distinct types of plan, some of which were originally part of the record plan series. Feature Surveys F and other letters - plans showing topographical features of areas not previously surveyed for settlement. Forests Reserves W, A - cadastral plans drawn before the establishment of the Forests Department in 1880, showing the location of forest reserves. Traverse Surveys 1 - surveys conducted in various parishes before a full parish plan had been compiled. These plans were originally used as the record plan, but after fuller parish compilations were made they were put into a separate collection. Tourist Plans T298 - maps produced in the early 1900's to promote tourism in Victoria. Defence Plans DEF - cadastral plans with levels plotted, and contour maps; produced for defence purposes during the early 20th century when a fear of invasion of Port Philip by the Russians was wide-spread. The numbering of this grouping begins at 52 due to an administrative error. Contour Plans C and others - plans of various areas showing contours. Border with SA BO - copies of published plans showing the disputed territory along the Victorian - South Australian border.

RUN PASTORAL RUNS 1847 - 1882 These plans portray the large areas of Crown Land licensed by squatters for grazing. All plans show the boundaries of the runs and those plans which refer to only one or a few runs may also give descriptions of vegetation and relief and plot tracks, fences, and huts. The sub-collection comprises three parts. Nos. 1-400 are a mixture of manuscripts drawn at small and large scales and may depict individual runs, or the array of runs occurring over whole regions. Nos. 401-1381 deal with individual runs and may be rough sketches or more carefully compiled manuscripts. These were originally held within pastoral run files, but in the course of microfilming these files prior to their transfer to the Public Record Office, Laverton the plans were extracted, repaired and formally added to the sub-collection. Nos. 1382 onwards are printed maps showing the distribution of runs over large areas.
