This work provides a comprehensive handbook on Queensland State lands law and practice for lawyers, local authorities, government departments and agencies.
The text provides an in-depth guide to the legislative framework governing State lands and underlying policies, land allocation and tenure, public purpose land, transport infrastructure land, waters and submerged lands, natural resources, Indigenous land rights and land administration. Commentary contains extensive practice notes, flowcharts, figures and diagrams. The publication provides an invaluable tool for those involved in managing State lands.
The Handbook complements the Annotated Land Act 1994 which provides comprehensive annotations and commentary to the Land Act.

… this very useful manual … will quickly find its place on the bookshelves of practitioners and government alike … There is emphasis placed on the role of policy in the question of decision-making and the precepts that have given rise to the mechanisms in place to day … The work is thoughtful in its catering both to those whose knowledge of areas is in depth … and the practitioner who may require some back ground to the area of Crown tenure...Mr Boge peppers his volumes with resources geared at those dealing with the various departments administering the processes underpinning the Acts … the book is a long-awaited contribution to the vacuum of commentary in this area.
