There was an immense amount of community input for this map and it's been great to be able to add in many local favourites; this really is a map for Canberrans! You’ll find places like Black Mountain, Westermans Hut, Booroomba Rocks, Gibraltar and Ginini Falls, Stromlo Forest, One Tree Hill and many other local haunts scattered across it.
Due to the mountainous nature of the Namadgi Wilderness and Brindabellas, there are a large amount of named peaks and ranges on the map. These include Bimberi Peak, Mount Namadgi, Mount Kelly, Yankee Hat, Sentry Box, Shanahans Mountain, Mount Gingera, Mount Ginini, Mount Franklin and many others. One of my favouriate aspects of the map is the iconic huts that are dotted throughout, including Westermans, Waterhole, Brayshaws, Hospital Creek, Gudgenby Homestead and Cotter Hut to name just a few.
Many of Canberra's main nature features and suburbs have been drawn in, including Capital Hill, Stromlo Forest, the main town centres and a large number of other suburbs. The city's iconic mountains such as Black Mountain, Mount Ainsley, Mount Majura, Mount Stromlo and the Pinnacle are all included, as is the One Tree Hill area.
It all combines to make for a well balanced and diverse map that showcases the spectacular wilderness and townships of the ACT. It was an absolute pleasure to draw!

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!
