The 1956? Reorganisation
This article is still being developed.
Before 1956, field management of the Forests Commission was organised through the Divisions and Districts set out in the table below.
The District boundaries are shown on the map further down; the numbers on the map correspond to the those beside the District names in the table.
The information has been transferred from a 'Magic Lantern' glass slide. The transfer was less than perfect as the photograph of the map base in the glass side was distorted somewhat. Treat the boundaries as indicative only. There are also anomalies: such as areas without numbers; no boundary in the Wombat-Ballarat area; in the east two districts are shown where perhaps there should be only one - Mallacoota.
