This directory is an important record, because few records survive that cover such an early period of history, making it hard to find information particularly on the early emigrants. Includes a 'Sketch of the Colony', followed by a calendar for 1833, and directions if sailing or travelling by road. The itinerary of roads lists all features (houses, mills, gates, bridges, stations, bush etc), as well as anecdotal information on some of the individuals. 'Rules and Regulations' relate to everything from land assigned to convicts; from county boundaries to discharged soldiers; ports and quarantine are all covered. The Post Office Directory section covers about 100 pages, listing people alphabetically by surname, occupation and often both home and work address. This covers Sydney, suburbs and country regions.
