The full title says that is an "Almanac and Queensland Directory, Law Calendar, Coast Guide, Gazetteer and Men of the Time". 

The Almanac part contains all the regular useful information such as a calendar, a diary of events for the year, Queensland parliamentary record, gardening calendar, government departments, even a listing of those in the legal profession, medical officers and practitioners, ministers of religion, surgeons, banks, masonic lodges, even the newspapers of the region including when each is issued etc. You will also find meteorological observations, postal information, population, ports and harbours, and so much more.

The Directory is more than useful too, listing not only a 'Country Directory' covering regional Queensland which lists the major towns listed alphabetically with the facilities available in each (i.e. hospital, pastoral society etc), together with the trades, occupations. names and addresses of those living there. The 'City of Brisbane Directory' covers both Brisbane city and suburbs.

The 'Men of the Time' section lists notable men throughout Queensland at this time.
