One of the titles in a series of touring maps connecting Australia’s main centres of population along some of the most spectacular routes such as the Great Ocean Road or the Savannah Way. The maps highlight 24-hour fuel supplies, roadside rest areas, camping facilities, places of interest, etc., and include distance charts and, in some titles, city maps. Road network indicates unsurfaced roads and tracks. The maps also show railway lines. There is no topographical information beyond names of mountain ranges and selected peaks, plus rivers and lakes, but national and state parks, conservation areas and reserves, and aboriginal lands are all highlighted. The maps have a grid showing latitude and longitude at intervals of 1º or 2º.
In this title: the route from Queensland’s coast at Rockampton to Longreach, and beyond to Winton and Windora. Latitude/longitude grid is at 1º intervals. On the reverse an enlargement shows the Carnarvon National Park at 1:750,000. Also included are notes on traveling along the Capricorn Highway.
