The Report: 'Soil, Land-Use, and Erosion Survey around Dookie, Victoria' was published by CSIRO in 1949. This general survey was carried out by R.G. Downes and covered an area of some 1554 square kilometres in order to provide basic information concerning soils, soil erosion, climate and land use which could be used to support soil conservation in that district. The report is available below, together with two of the associated maps.
