The County of Livingstone is a county (a cadastral division) in Queensland, Australia. It is centred on the city of Rockhampton and includes most of the Rockhampton Region.[1][2] The county was created on 1 September 1855 by royal proclamation under the Waste Lands Australia Act 1846.[3] On 7 March 1901, the Governor issued a proclamation legally dividing Queensland into counties under the Land Act 1897.[4] Its schedule described Livingstone thus:

Bounded on the south by the county of Deas Thompson and the southern boundaries of the parishes of Plews, Bouldercombe, Mooninera and Playfair; on the west by the western boundaries of the parishes of Playfair, Stanwell, Neerkol, Limestone, Morinish, Yaamba, Canoona and Werribee; on the north by the northern boundaries of the parishes of Werribee, Rosslynn and Yeppoon, and on the east by the Pacific Ocean,—inclusive of Great Keppel, North Keppel, and other adjacent islands.
