The Country Towns Print Archive comprises notebooks, manuscripts, text, drawings, photographs, maps and plans relating to Queensland country towns. It provides a snapshot of Queensland 30 years ago and enables changes since then to be measured.

Between 1978 and 1987, third year University of Queensland students in Architectural Design, under the supervision of Michael Keniger and Brit Andresen, travelled to country towns across Queensland to observe and document the fabric of place. Students followed a consistent methodology and particular emphasis was placed on documenting in detail the main street of each country town. Over 10 years, the built fabric of a significant number of country towns was documented and collected to form the Country Towns Print Archive.

This resource provides insight into the fabric and life of country towns in Queensland before periods of change – the result of booms in tourism in the 80s and mining in the 90s and the ongoing drought – induced contraction in farming. Many changes in country towns occurred before the introduction of Heritage Legislation in Queensland and the creation of the Department of Environment and Heritage in the 1980s established a level of scrutiny.
