Born out of a love for Australia's mountains, wild places and fantastic nature, the New South Wales map has been meticulously hand drawn with black and red inks over a 60 hour process.

This particular map was immensely enjoyable to draw - it really is a bit of a cartographer's dream (not that I should have favourites). The abundance of wilderness, the soaring Great Dividing Range, rivers and long coastline and unique cities and townships combine to make for a fantastic map.
From the salt lakes and small towns of the NSW Outback, across the wheat belt and many rivers of the Riverina lands, over the Eastern Divide and onto the hilly coastal regions, New South Wales is home to a truly unique geography that was a pleasure to draw.
The largest element of the map is the Great Dividing Range, stretching the length of the entire map dividing the well forested coastal regions from the Western plains. The mountainous areas and surrounding highlands have many peaks over 1,000m that have individual labels, with areas such as Barrington Tops, the Blue Mountains, the Warrumbungles and the iconic Snowy Mountains having an added level of detail to mark them out.
As a special nod to Christopher Tolkien, the original cartographer of the Lord of the Rings map, I have drawn this state map with a compass that has very similar characteristics to his own. I would like to thank everyone who kindly messaged me with a range of suggestions as to important geographical areas and townships needed to be included!
