See What Cowra Looked Like 100 Years Ago!

Over 4,600 historic plans of 460 regional towns in NSW — including Cowra — have just been digitised and made available for the first time on the State Library of NSW’s website.

According to the State Library’s maps expert, Maggie Patton: “Subdivision plans are an absolute goldmine for genealogists and local historians as they allow us to place ourselves in the past — on a street, in a town, where we once lived, where our ancestors established themselves.”

Subdivision plans were ephemeral items, usually discarded once a development site was sold. Luckily, the State Library has acquired and preserved these 100-year-old plans for the people of NSW and beyond, to access and use.

Dating from as early as the 1880s, up to the 1930s, the plans were produced by real estate agents and auctioneers to advertise new subdivisions and land sales.

They range from hand-drawn surveyors’ plans to beautifully designed colour posters.

Subdivision plans make great gifts! You can order an archival print of any of the digitized plans from the Library Shop. Simply search your regional town at, copy the link of your chosen map, and send an enquiry to order your print at
