Hermit Park, the great sale took place at the Town Hall on Thursday, Nov. 6, Townsville, Queensland, 1884. This estate map showed allotments to be sold in Townsville by Ackers, Wilson, Ayrton and Ryan in association with Smith and Walker, auctioneers. The estate was surveyed by Benwell & Echlin. The plan includes a local sketch. Estate maps can give information about land subdivisions, including how the land was subdivided, when it was first auctioned, who the surveyors were and who sold the land. They are useful for investigating the history of urban land areas. They were also used as advertisements for land sales.
