Talbot, R.J. and Rossiter, P.D. (1959) Soil survey of Coolum field station, South-Eastern Queensland. Queensland Journal of Agricultural Science, 16 (1). pp. 53-72.



An area typical of much of the wallum country which extends along a large part of the south-eastern coast of Queensland was surveyed. The soils mapped have been divided into three great soil groups - Lateritic-Podzolic Soils; Aeolian and Marine Alluvial Sands; and Acid Swamp Soils. The geological complexity of the area complicates any endeavour to interpret the genesis of the soil groups encountered. All soils are chemically infertile and with the exception of the acid swamp soils possess poor moisture-retaining properties.
