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.
Kalimna Park, part of the Castlemaine Diggings National Heritage Park, is adjacent to the east edge of Castlemaine, Victoria, Australia. Kalimna Point is in the southern part of the park and accomodates a Castlemaine Field Naturalists Club documented walking track. The northern part of the park (it has a slightly more remote ambience) holds the Unknown Miners Grave. Just outside the park, to the south, is the Bourke and Wills Monument.
The intended hardcopy size for this map is A3.
When walking in the park the distinction between a lightly used track and a heavily used animal pad can be unclear; also some of the shorter tracks could be reasonably classified as improvised shortcuts. The cartographer has made subjective judgements on the inclusion or non-inclusion of some of the minor tracks.
The Friends of Kalimna Park assisted with the construction of the Kalimna Park Walking Tracks Map. Thanks also to George Milford, Harcourt Valley Heritage and Tourism Centre, and Ern Perkins, Castlemaine Field Naturalists Club, for their input.
