portion (block, plot or lot of land, subdivision of a parish)
Explanation:
"An Act to enable the trustees of the land comprised in deed of grant no. 103853, being portion 119, in the county of Ward and parish of Dugandan, and being a reserve for a show ground, to mortgage the same"
http://www5.austlii.edu.au/au/legis/qld/consol_act/bsga19142...

"Queensland was originally divided into administrative areas to create a unique identifier for each property. [...]
When blocks of land were surveyed within a parish, they were given a unique portion number. The unique identifier for the block would be the portion number and the parish name (e.g. Portion 23 Parish of Rosewood).
When freehold blocks were subdivided for the first time, the resulting blocks were described as subdivisions (subs) of the portion (e.g. subs 1 and 2 of Portion 23 Parish of Rosewood)."

Since a "portion" is an administrative area, not a property, please ignore "plot or lot" in my answer. It is a block of land and a subdivision of a parish but not a plot or lot, as such.
