Officers of the Royal Engineers were first sent to NSW and Van Diemen's Land in 1835. Small parties of Sappers & Miners were sent to WA in 1837, SA in 1839, Van Diemen's Land in 1852 and Vic in 1854 and were mainly engaged on surveying work. In 1854-1868 a party of Sappers and Miners were employed on special service with the Sydney Mint. The largest force was based in WA in 1850-1863, attached to the Convict Establishment, the officers eventually being transferred to the Public Works Dept. A company served in NZ in 1850-1867 and took a major part in the Maori Wars.
