This particular map has been 12 months in the making; almost a year after I started drawing the state maps, I was finally able to sit down and tackle the whole of Australia. It has made for a fascinating cartographic study; unique topography, immense deserts, the soaring Great Dividing Range, diverse vegetation, salt lakes and long coastal areas demonstrate why it is one of the world's most unique corners.
Each state and territory's main topography, highest mountain peak, geography and cities are all marked, as are Australia's deserts, seas, largest river systems and marine zones. The Great Barrier Reef and the Great Dividing Range are clearly marked to the East, while the centre of the map has been stylised with a special stippling technique to portray the desert regions. The Northern Territory's top end, Cape York Peninsula and much of the Eastern coast demonstrate high vegetation, and South Australia's iconic salt lakes are all inked on too.

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!
