Born out of a love for Australia's mountains, wild places and fantastic nature, the New South Wales map has been meticulously hand drawn with black and red inks over a 60 hour process.

This particular map was immensely enjoyable to draw - it really is a bit of a cartographer's dream (not that I should have favourites). The abundance of wilderness, the soaring Great Dividing Range, rivers and long coastline and unique cities and townships combine to make for a fantastic map.
From the salt lakes and small towns of the NSW Outback, across the wheat belt and many rivers of the Riverina lands, over the Eastern Divide and onto the hilly coastal regions, New South Wales is home to a truly unique geography that was a pleasure to draw.
The largest element of the map is the Great Dividing Range, stretching the length of the entire map dividing the well forested coastal regions from the Western plains. The mountainous areas and surrounding highlands have many peaks over 1,000m that have individual labels, with areas such as Barrington Tops, the Blue Mountains, the Warrumbungles and the iconic Snowy Mountains having an added level of detail to mark them out.
As a special nod to Christopher Tolkien, the original cartographer of the Lord of the Rings map, I have drawn this state map with a compass that has very similar characteristics to his own. I would like to thank everyone who kindly messaged me with a range of suggestions as to important geographical areas and townships needed to be included!
PREMIUM MATTE PAPER

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!
