About this Site


Most of the information on this site, and in particular in the book, are from various sources. I have concentrated on collating the information into appropriate chapters and generating useful indexes. Credits and sources of information are listed at the end of each chapter

Most of the photographs have been supplied by Knox Historical Society. High quality copies are available from the Society at a low cost.


You are free to print and distribute any information on this site on a non profit basis, subject to the conditions outlined in the next two paragraphs.

Parts of the textual information on this site are copyright The Basin Progress Association Incorporated and parts have been extracted from other publications. You must check the source before you reproduce anything for profit.

Most photographs and maps are used with permission from other sources and you must obtain permission from these other sources before you can reproduce them for profit. The sources are quoted under each photograph or map.


A conventional index will be provided in all publishing formats. I have expended considerable effort into the indexing as I believe it is important for historical publications.

Click-able Map

A further feature of on-line publishing is the ability to use click-able image maps. I have provided two on this site for The Basin “Places of Interest” and “Subdivisions”. Just click on a number on the map and you will taken to a web page with details of the clicked item.

Purchasing “Fire on the Hill - Flowers in the Valley”

This is the title of the original History of The Basin book published in 1992. The book is 17.5cm x 25cm, 100 pages, many photographs and index.

The book is available for purchase from Knox Historical Society.
