State Soils Collection

The State Soils Collection is a collection of soil samples collected since 1978, covering most Queensland soil types. The soils were collected as part of soils assessments and major monitoring programs.     

The state collection is physically held across numerous sites including Brisbane, Toowoomba, Rockhampton and Mareeba.

Samples within the Queensland State Soils Collection have associated morphology, physical and chemistry data stored in the Soil and Land Information system.
