Abstract 'Queensland is notoriously huge: most parts of it are still unknown, except to the people who live in them', found Nettie Palmer in 'Southern Queensland: an emerging picture' in 1927. Southern Queensland was the part that has 'begun to exist most formidably on paper' and was a 'world of contrasts': 'the coastal country, a world in itself of shores and mountains', 'the surprising Granite Belt with its chill vigour' and out west. As part of her work as a critic she encouraged the authors of these places. 'There is a good deal to be said’ wrote Nettie in her private journal ‘for letting the mind rest in one spot, small enough to hold the affections and, perhaps, be understood'. And then we 'can penetrate the curtain that hides the past' and make a journey of discovery.
