[Extract] During the late 1850s, pastoralists in New South Wales were pushing the boundaries of settlement ever northward throughout what would become the new colony of Queensland. As new maps were published over the next two decades gradually the details and features of the colony emerged. These maps contributed to the geographical construction of Queensland and exerted a defining influence on the changing perceptions of the new colony.
