A map is a graphical representation of a geographical actuality.  However, though some maps are more representative than others, no map is absolutely correct.  The maps on this site are not exempt from this rule.

Italian Hill Walking Tracks
Italian Hill Walking Tracks Map

This map covers the area of the Castlemaine Diggings National Heritage Park containing Italian Hill, Victoria, Australia.  The Goldfields Track (this section of the track is common to the Great Dividing Trail and the Dry Diggings Track) passes through the area covered by the map.  Some of the notable features in the area are Vaughan Springs, Glenluce Springs, Warburton Bridge, Porcupine Ridge Track and Italian Hill Track.  On its northern edge the map overlaps the Irishtown map, on its southern edge it is overlapped by the Loop Track map and on its eastern edge it overlaps the Shicer Gully map.  This map was produced as a CCM freelance exercise, not in conjunction with a community group.  However, by the way, thanks to Dave for his excellent local place names information.

The intended hardcopy format (as PDF) for this map is A3.

Ambiguities and Uncertainties

There are two Sailor's Gully place names on this map, one in the north (a tributary to the Loddon River) and another approximately in the centre of the map.

Helge Track at its east end is signposted and recorded on some maps as Helbe Track.
