Created right here in the Territory, this map took several months to complete, consisting of many 4WD trips and approximately 80 hours of drawing time. I’m lucky enough to call Darwin home and it has been an absolute pleasure to create this map that celebrates the NT's people, wild places and nature.
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.
I couldn’t resist adding in a bunch of local favourites to this particular artwork; this really is a Territory map for Territorians! You’ll find places like Maguk, Jim Jim Falls, Umbrawarra Gorge, Dundee Beach, Lorella Springs, Standley Chasm, Simpsons Gap, and many others scattered across it.
The Top End section is dominated by tropical forests, wooded savannah and winding river systems. Important National Parks and protected areas like Litchfield, Kakadu, Judbarra, Limmen and Arnhem Land are highly detailed, while the coastline is studded with island clusters, including Croker Island, Groote Eylandt, Elcho Island and others.
The Central Australia portion of the map features the Macdonnell Ranges, with individual markers for many of its main peaks, including Mount Zeil, Sonder, Liebig, and others. Kata Tjuta and Uluru have been drawn to reflect their unique topographical shape. Areas of interest such as Kings Canyon, Ormiston Gorge, Simpsons Gap and Lawrence Gorge have also been included.
The Northern Territory is home to many First Nations people, and I have done my best to include as many as possible, including markers for Larakia, Arrernte, Pitjantjatjara, Luritja, Pintupi, Warlpiri, Warumungu, Wakaya, Yangman, Wardaman and Yolngu lands. Whenever possible I have used the First Nations name for a township, and this is especially apparent in the Central Australia region.
It all combines to make for a well balanced and diverse map that showcases the unique geography and townships of the Northern Territory. It was an absolute pleasure to draw!
PREMIUM MATTE PAPER
Your map print is printed on an acid-free 270gsm matte parchment with giclée inks. The colours will remain vivid for many years to come and the detailing is extremely sharp.
• 270gsm weight
• Giclée inks
• Matte finish
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!
