2016By 1877 Victoria had been well and truly surveyed

30 July 2016

The counties of Victoria are names of the divisions used in VictoriaAustralia, for land administration purposes. Victoria is divided into 37 counties, which were gazetted in stages between 1849 and 1871 as Victoria was progressively opened up to British settlement.  Victoria’s counties have no administrative or political function. They exist purely as cadastral units: used for the purposes of identifying the location of any piece of land. The counties are further divided into 2914 parishes and townships.
