Notes

The webpages of this database for the first 13 periods in office of premiers in Queensland (from 1859 to 1888) are under construction. Information displayed, other than the dates of office, may not be complete or correct and is subject to change as new information is added to the website.

The process of extending and upgrading all Queensland entries in the database will take several months. When it is completed, we trust you will think it was worth the wait!
