Abstract: In May 1890, Henry George made a 16-day lecture tour in Queensland, giving eight lectures in five locations. This paper gives a day-by-day summary of the tour, followed by a commentary on some of the arguments used by George to support land-value taxation, and on some of the objections raised against him; and discusses whether these arguments and objections are relevant to the question of land prices and land taxation in Australia today.
