Phases of land settlement and problems of land development are related to the C.S.I.RO. soil survey of Flinders Island, 1957. The analysis is in terms of property ownership whether private or War Service Land Settlement, type of farming, associated vegetation, and difficulties of land improvement. It is concluded that knowledge of soil type has been essential for the spread of settlement, and that while further development is physically possible it may be precluded by the high costs of land development and the provision of adequate marketing facilities.
