Passenger Lists to Queensland

The Queensland State Archives has an index to passenger lists of those arriving in Queensland from 1848 to 1912. This index is arranged alphabetically so names are easy to find, and it has hyperlinks to the actual images of the passenger lists. The detail on the Queensland passenger lists does vary over time, but they do include the names of ship, date of departure from European port and arrival in Queensland port, together with the tonnage etc of ships and names of masters, surgeons etc as well as the passenger lists, usually arranged by type of passage (eg free, assisted, remittance, bounty, steerage) or sometimes by type of immigrant (eg railway workers).
Details for each entry for a passenger include the name, whether married or single, male or female and age, whether a child 1-12 or an infant. A summary of passenger totals, including births and deaths, may also be included.
