Abstract

For the purpose of obtaining a general understanding of the geology of North Stradbroke Island, field work was carried out on the island from January 8th to February 17th, 1948. Altimeter traverses were made from Dunwich, Amity, Point Lookout and Blue Lake, and from the connecting roads. The southern portion was covered from landing points on the west coast near Russel Island. The results of observations were plotted on to Military Map Queensland Zone 8, No. 182 (Brisbane Valley). Altimeter readings were corrected from the readings of a weekly barograph stationed at Dunwich, on the western side of the island. This report is comprised in two parts. In Part I, the physiography and the geology of the island are described. In Part II, an account is given of the history of the development of the island.
