South Island lands purchased for settlement

This map shows in red the 119 properties in the South Island purchased before 1912 under the Land for Settlement Act 1894 and subsequently broken up into smaller farms. Most of the properties were on the east coast and were mainly sheep farms. Many were in South Canterbury and North Otago. The properties in purple were Crown lands available for settlement.
