Born out of a love for Australia's mountains, wild places and fantastic nature, the Western Australia map has been meticulously hand drawn with black and red inks over a 65 hour process.
LIMITED NUMBERS: as a small business I can only produce maps in small numbers. Print numbers are limited.
LOCALLY MADE: all map prints are produced in Australia or NZ; your purchase goes directly to supporting local businesses.
PERSONALISATION: if you would like me to add a special marker for your home, a town or anything that is significant, please order an A1 size and email me using this contact form with your request.
This particular map features so much fantastic and unique geography! All of the state's main topographical landmarks, such as the low hills of the Darling Escarpment, the peaks of the Stirling Ranges and Wunaamin Miliwundi Range have all been accurately marked.
The mountains of the Hamersley Range are particularly dense and have many individually named peaks, including Mount MeHarry, the highest peak in Western Australia. Major river systems such as the Fitzroy River, Gascoyne, Swan, Ord and others wind their way throughout the map, as well as a number of important salt lakes and their tributaries.
The many deserts are another prominent feature, with the Great Sandy Desert, Little Sandy Desert, Great Victoria Desert and the Gibson Desert clearly marked. Western Australia's renowned coast-line is dotted with the state's many islands, inlets and national parks, including areas such as the Archipelago of the Recherge, Shark Bay, Ningaloo Reef, Eighty Mile Beach and the Joseph Bonaparte Gulf. Throughout the map are cities, towns and even a few iconic road houses!
Each of Western Australia's iconic regions has been given thorough attention, from the golden agricultural landscapes of the Wheatbelt and arid plains of the Mid West, to the ancient forests of the South West, tropical savannah of the Kimberley, and mountains and deserts of the Pilbara.

Prints are shipped in either a hard card box or mailing tube depending on the size. Please allow time to flatten before use. Prints are not provided with a frame.
You have the option to choose between two background colours; the Original, which is a soft white and has some subtle texturing, or Antique, which is printed on the same paper but contains an aged-look reminiscent of an antique map.
Maps are available in three sizes; A3 (30 x 42cm), A2 (42 x 59.5cm) and A1 (59.5 x 84cm). As these maps are highly detailed, the legibility of smaller texts and labels will be somewhat reduced at the A3 size. This is not due to any loss of quality, but simply that the writing will become quite small in certain instances. If you have the wall space available, our personal recommendation is to go with an A2 or A1 size.
When you buy a print from Wildwood Maps, we send these directly to you in a protected mailing tube using Australia Post, New Zealand Post or International shipping.
HOW LONG UNTIL I RECEIVE MY ORDER?
Each map is printed on demand so that you receive a brand new map instead of one that has been sitting on a shelf. Most orders will typically be mailed out within 1-3 business days, and will then take (on average) 5-7 days to arrive. If Australia Post is experiencing delays or high volumes then this may impact your delivery date.
If you've had this experience I'm really sorry about that and will definitely help you out. If you've received a product with damage on it please let me know by sending me an email via the contact page. I'll need you to send it back to me and I'll send you a replacement. If you never received something from your order please let me know asap! All of our products are tracked so we should be able to figure it out. If it truly is lost then I will send you a new one free of charge.
WHERE CAN I GET A FRAME FROM?
I don't sell frames or print hangers directly through the website as, depending on where you're based, the cost of shipping them can really inflate the final price of your order. But I am very happy to direct you to the best framer in your local area if I can!
