ARTIST NOTES

This has to be one of the most beautiful areas of Australia, and maybe even the world, and was a really special map to draw! The idea was to combine the regions of Greater Sydney, the Central Coast and the Blue Mountains with the huge tract of bushland that that surrounds them to the East.
This inland wilderness is the Greater Blue Mountains UNESCO World Heritage area and it is one of the largest forested areas in Australia. Covering 1 million hectares, it stretches from the edge of the Hunter Valley all the way to the Southern Highlands.
It also includes a central part of the Great Dividing Range, which travels down the Eastern spine of the map, stretching across several National Parks and giving us some of the most rugged mountain to be found in NSW.
Starting in the North East, the mountains of the Wollemi wilderness merge with the the hill country of Yengo and the peaks of the Gardens of Stone National Parks, before reaching the iconic Blue Mountains area. The uninterrupted wilderness then continues to the Southern end of the map with the forests of the Kanangra-Boyd and Nattai National Parks.
While the map does centre on Greater Sydney and the Central Coast, it also stretches all the way North to Newcastle and reaches as far south as Wollongong to maximise how much coastline is included. There urban areas are full of individually labelled cities, towns and points of interest in an attempt to include as much localised details as possible.
Many of the mountain ranges, valleys, river systems and areas of interest are also individually labelled, such as the Jamison and Megalong Valleys in the Blue Mountains,The Devil’s Wilderness area, Jenolan Caves, the Blue Labyrinth and Grose Gorge river system.
It all combines to make for a well balanced and diverse map that showcases the spectacular wilderness of the Greater Blue Mountains alongside some of Australia's most beautiful cities and townships. 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. 

 

 BACKGROUND COLOUR 
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.

 

SIZES

Maps are available in three sizes; A2 (42 x 59.5cm), A1 (59.5 x 84cm) and A0 (84 x 119cm). While all the sizes display the map in crisp detailing, if you have the wall space available, our personal recommendation is to go with the larger A1 or A0 size for maximum enjoyment.

HOW DOES SHIPPING WORK?

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 I RECEIVE A DAMAGED PRINT WHAT SHOULD I DO?

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!

I get my own frames from Mulbury Frames and have recommended them to dozens of map-buyers, all of who have been super happy with them! Their products are made from salvaged timber and are beautifully textured. My personal recommendations are the Chunky Frame and Original Oiled Frame.  

 

DO YOU DO COMMISSIONS?

 I'm happy to chat about any commissions if you'd like one! Please keep in mind that the pricing is a reflection of how much work goes into creating a new map. If you'd like to commission a design that can also be sold to the public I am happy to offer a discounted price. If you would like a map done in A4 or A3 then this also would make it more affordable. Send me an email on an email via the contact page and we can chat about it!

 

I'D LIKE TO STOCK YOUR PRINTS IN MY SHOP. IS THIS SOMETHING YOU DO? 
Definitely! Please send me an email via the contact page and I would love to discuss it further with you.
