Pick Your Queensland Map

On this page you can pick the Queensland map that suits your trip.

I know this may be getting repetative if you read all my maps pages, but the maps I always recommend are HEMA maps.

They are the best and most detailed ones amonst all that are available in Australia, and they are the only ones I use.

This map covers the Cape York peninsula and while there are quite a few Cape York maps, I have tried them all and I can say this one is the best.

It covers the peninsula in great detail, has symbols for services with each town, township or roadhouse, and even has GPS coordinates. This is the map I use to get around in Cape York and I am confident to recommend it to you too.

Here are some more Cape York maps

If you go inland, here are the inland maps

The whole area is as interesting as Cape York and a destination on its own.

central australia map

The "Red Centre" - Central Australia Map
And of course, north of the Central Australia Deserts is Australia's Red Centre - the area most widely known as the heart of Australian Outback and very popular with international visitors, mainly because of Uluru and Kata Tjuta National Park. But there is so much more in the area around Alice Springs, such as Kings Canyon, MacDonnell Ranges and Finke Gorge. It is a great bushwalking and 4WDriving country and here is a great map that covers it. 

And if you like to visit wine regions, here is the Wine Map:
