When the first Census of the Colony of Queensland was taken on 7 April, 1861, there were 1,562 males and 562 females living in Queensland who were born in Germany, of whom 1,049 males and 296 females were from Rural Portions of Police DistrictsGermany was the largest foreign European contributor to Queensland's population with an undesirable, disproportionate number of females to males.

The following announcement, repeated in German, was in the The Darling Downs Gazette and General Advertiser on 13 March 1862.

German Immigration.

SINCE the issue of our present Immigration Regulations our endeavour has been to cultivate GERMAN IMMIGRATION to this colony, and our Mr. HEUSSLER left for EUROPE at the end of MARCH, in order to supervise himself the outfit of the Vessels. He delayed his departure until he could take with him his appointment as GOVERNMENT AGENT for the Continent, on authority of which he will be able to send out a superior class of immigrants.
The first vessel will have been despatched by this time, and we have reason to expect that a regular line from Germany will be established.
Parties intending to introduce Labourers or Relatives from the Continent of Europe are requested to favour us with their orders.
HEUSSLER & FRANCKSEN.
Brisbane, 21st August, 1861.
